This course examines the complex interrelationships and dilemmas associated with contemporary understandings of human biological sex determination, experiences of gender that cross biological sex categories (i.e., transgender), and the range of sexual identities, orientations, and preferences. The term "queer" is intended as a synonym for odd, peculiar or anomalous, but is also appropriated as a term to challenge the "hardening of the categories" and dichotomies of male-female, masculine-feminine, and hetero-homosexuality.
