Queer Fiction

Module code: EN7134

This module draws on feminist and queer theory to explore the ways in which gender is constructed and represented in literature. It features texts that explore what it means to be a man or a woman, probe the relationship between gender, sex and sexuality and create what Judith Butler terms ‘gender trouble’ by highlighting the fluidity, multiplicity and performativity of gender in ways that challenge heteropatriarchal norms.
