Interdisciplinary exploration of politics of emotion, with an emphasis on the emotions that attach to race, gender, and sexuality.
Students will demonstrate an understanding of contemporary debates in affect theory, and will demonstrate an understanding of how affect theory intersects with related fields, including feminist theory, critical race theory, and queer theory.

Students will demonstrate an understanding of how gender, race, and sexuality might be re-conceptualized as affective sites.

Students will develop close-reading skills, and strengthen their critical thinking skills by drafting weekly response papers that closely engage the assigned texts.
