Class Description:
This course is designed to examine how gender identity and sexuality are policed in U.S. society. Policing in this regard includes law enforcement, government organizations, and public policy. Students will explore the range of social control tactics that limit the economic, political, and social mobility of individuals who hold Queer and trans gender identities. We will examine the formal and informal ways in which these tactics are used and the impacts they have had on those directly impacted. Using an intersectional lens, students will better understand how individuals with multiple marginalized identities (i.e. Black trans women) navigate multiple systems of oppression and how these experiences differ from those with single marginalized identities (i.e. white trans men). While the course includes a focus on the challenges and obstacles associated with the policing of Queer and trans- identities, course content also includes examining policy solutions for reparative justice and equity.
