Queer / LGBTQ+ Literature: The 21st Century Week-Long Intensive

Class
Val Gryphin
Average rating:4.9Number of reviews:(43)
From the early 1900s to today, queer literature has gone through significant movements. In this summer intensive learners will study post-2000 queer literature.

Class experience

US Grade 8 - 11
In addition to being a member of, and active in, many aspects of the queer community, including activism and visibility, I also raised and homeschooled a queer child. The critical component of my MFA degree was on the history of queer protagonists in mainstream literature, a paper that was later published, and I have continued to expand on that research for further publication.
Homework Offered
Homework will consist of assigned readings from a list provided for before each class, some of which will be online.
2 - 4 hours per week outside of class
Assessments Offered
Grades Offered
Notebook/paper and pencil/pen. A handout will be given each class for reference, but printing it is optional.
When discussing themes, histories, and patterns in queer literature, parents should be aware that somewhat challenging topics such as homophobia, racism, depression, and others will inevitably be discussed, as these topics are a part of many queer people’s lives, and therefore their literature. These topics will be handled sensitively, and in the context of the work and the author’s lives. Literature referenced will be from both the adult and YA cannon, but while a novel as a whole might contain sexual or violent themes, the assigned readings will not contain gratuitous sex or violence.
