WMST 205 - Queer Latina Visualities: Art, Theory, and Resistance

An introduction to queer Latina art as a field of interdisciplinary feminist inquiry, with a focus on art by Chicana, Xicana, Indigenous, Central American, Puerto Rican, Dominican, and Cuban artists. This course examines the synergetic relation between queer Latina feminist art, theory, and resistance. Students will learn how queer Latina visualities are shaped by historical, social, and political forces - like colonialism, racism, and globalization - and how queer Latina artists, in turn, act upon and shape the social world. Students investigate queer Chicana/Latina feminist texts, asking how artists challenge existing power dynamics, embody decolonial knowledge.
