What does it mean when artistic work is world making? Students think through queer punk as method by looking at resistant literature: things that are not just gay but queer, critical, and artful. In true spirit of queer praxis, literature is understood not as written word alone. Music, video, art, dance, performance, ritual, and collective experiences are all works of artistic merit and meaning, and contribute to body of knowledge that shapes queer and punk epistemologies and identities. Students read and analyze work from classic and contemporary creators, writers, musicians, skateboarders, zinesters, dancers, astrologers, and more. Students think about what it means to make queer art that is oppositional, affirming, and community building; that creates, critiques, and negotiates power; and that responds to gaps. Students write paper and create original work.
