This unit draws on and extends prior learning in gender studies and enables students to formulate innovative research projects in a variety of areas relating to sexualities and their transformation, including the history of sexuality, theory, sexual research methods, narrative, archives, affect, kinship and space. The unit engages those research perspectives and interdisciplinary methodologies from across the social sciences and humanities that coalesce as queer theory.
