Welcome to the WikiEdit
This wiki has been created as a learning tool for Professor Longo's Oakes 150 Spring 2015 class "Queer Theory and History in the US". Throughout the wiki you can find a number of glossary terms to aid in your learning experience. Along with this wiki, three other sister projects have been created for the class:
A historical archive of queer history - http://queerarchive2015.tumblr.com/
A historical timeline of queer history - http://www.tiki-toki.com/timeline/entry/463723/United-States-Queer-History/
What is Queer Theory?Edit
Queer theory is a field of post-structural analysis that challenges the idea that sex, sexuality, and gender are static and essential concepts. Queer theory often deals with non-conformity and expressions outside of the binary.
