This course serves as a panoramic introduction to Spanish literatures and cultures from the perspective of the non-heteronormative subject, from 1898 through the present.
Under the label of queer the class includes a heterogeneous group of voices, experiences, historical figures and fictional characters, as well as social performances whose common denominator is to challenge the patriarchal and heteronormative society. We will examine artistic product such as literary pieces, films, and testimonial and biographical materials like documentaries or memoirs.
