POL338H1: Queer International Relations


Are States straight? How does racialized homophobia shape the international order? This course tackles these and other questions at the intersection of sexuality and IR. We examine concepts like sovereignty through a queer lens and explore issues like transphobia in right-wing populism and the institutionalization of SOGI terminology at the UN.
