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 firstname.lastname@example.org or Rabby Mychal at email@example.com –we’re here to support you!
