Intersections Between Queer Theory and Psychological Research (PSY4102.01)

Ella Ben Hagai

In this class we will pursue cross-disciplinary entanglements. We will closely read key texts from poststructural feminist thought, and queer theory. We will juxtapose how feminist theory and queer theory frame gender, sexuality and desire with empirical socio-psychological research. We will further analyze more recent writing by queer theorists examining topics such as neoliberalism, homonormativity, Palestine/Israel, and surveillance of trans-bodies. Students will be expected to design and conduct pilot research examining concepts from queer theory using social science methodologies.
