Hello and welcome!

Thank you for stopping by to find out more about Trans and Genderqueer Literature at the University of Arizona. Here are a few important details:

This course will be offered in Spring 2014.

Class will be held Mondays, 5:30-8pm at UA with TC Tolbert.

This class can be counted as an elective

in the English or Creative Writing major or minor.

To register for the course, sign up for GWS 300, Section 791 – Special Topics.

In this groundbreaking course, we will study poetry, fiction, and creative non-fiction by trans and genderqueer authors. We will explore a variety of theoretical, cultural, and political contexts as we analyze the evolving literary discourses on trans and genderqueer experiences. You do not need to be trans or genderqueer identified to take this course. In fact, I encourage allies to sign up! You do, however, need to have a basic understanding of trans and genderqueer identities. We will build upon that knowledge quickly, so it will be important that you have done some work/reading on your own. For a list of suggested intro readings, go to the page marked “suggested texts.”

If you have questions about the class, please email me at tctolbert (at) email.arizona.edu.

Non-degree seeking students can take the course but they have to have official non-degree seeking status. If this applies to you, be sure to apply for admission as a non-degree seeking student. Go here:  http://admissions.arizona.edu/other/non-degree-seeking-students 

I look forward to working with you!
