Syllabus

Hello all!

Here’s a tentative schedule for the six classes we have planned over the next two months:

February 4: “Epistemology of the Closet,” Eve Sedgwick

February 11: “Queers are Like Jews, Aren’t They? Analogy and Alliance Politics,” Janet Jakobsen; “Eating the Bread of Affliction: Judaism and Feminist Criticism,” Susan Gubar

February 25: “Queering the Center by Centering the Queer,” Naomi Scheman

March 4: Prologue and Introduction from Unheroic Conduct, Daniel Boyarin

March 11: Angels in America, Tony Kushner

March 18: “Transparent, A Guide for the Perplexed” by Jonathan Freedman; Season 1, Episode 6 and Season 2, Episode 7 of Transparent

These readings will all be posted in PDF form to this blog–with the exception of Kushner’s Angels in America, which cannot be reproduced here because it is a work in its entirety. Make sure you get a copy from a library or bookseller to read in advance of the session! We’ll discuss in person how best to make sure everyone has access to the Transparent episodes.

Should any questions or issues arise, you can always contact Annie at annie.atura@gmail.com or Rabby Mychal at rabbi@shaarzahav.org –we’re here to support you!
