What happens when race and sexuality collide? This fully online course will emphasize intersectionality through literature from writers of color who are also members of the LGBTQ+ community. We will discuss the impact of having multiple minority statuses as well as historic (dis)connections between racial and LGBTQ+ social justice movements. Through poetry, novels, and essays, we will examine how LGBTQ+ writers of color redefine our understanding of identity, language, and relationships, while simultaneously expanding the American Literary canon. This course satisfies the core Literature and Writing requirement for those students that started with an ENGL 201-204 class, satisfies the core Human Diversity requirement, the Diversity requirement for English majors, an allied requirement for select business majors, and a WAC Writing to Learn requirement. Prerequisite: ENGL 201, 202, 203, or 204.
