CLASSIC 250 – Topics in Greek and Roman Culture and Literature: Queer Classics
Instructor(s): Ella Haselswerdt. Whether taken as descriptive of set of methodologies or as imperative rallying cry, topic of queer classics has asserted itself as significant force in field over past several years. Tension between two terms–former a broad rubric for non-normativity typically, though not exclusively, inflected through sexuality, desire, and body; latter referring to (traditionally) backwards-looking, valorizing, strictly defined discipline–has generated new ways of thinking and feeling with and through (dis)junctures between antiquity, present, and future. Study interrogates history of current inflection point while it simultaneously attempts to chart new ways forward. Objects of study drawn from primary textual sources in Greek and Latin, material evidence, reception (broadly construed) from antiquity to present in any medium, recent scholarship, queer theory, and other methodologies that are found to be generative. Participants collaborate in setting agenda.
