HIST 2111

Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender U.S. History

Prereq: Eligible for ENGC 1101, and READ 1106

Students deepen their understanding of the experiences of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people in U.S. society and the historical roots within the United States of those who experience same-sex attraction and those who identify outside expectations for their perceived gender, understood now as lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender. Students trace roots from the colonial era, when behavior rather than identity formed the common understanding of sexuality, through the 19th century when the concepts of hetero- and homosexuality were developed, into the 20th and 21st centuries, when a focus on particular social identities became a salient feature of U.S. society.
