(HIST 4635) Gay Family in America

This class is an interdisciplinary exploration of queer families (i.e., the families of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender individuals) in America.  Drawing on texts from the fields of History and Psychology we will analyze the dynamics of the queer family in light of a long history of family diversity in America.  We will examine the most recent psychological literature on family life including research into queer couples, marriage, and parenting.  Finally, we will address the impact that the emergence of queer families has had on American understandings of categories such as gender, race, and class, as well as of the structure, purpose and ideology of family.
