Queer GLAM


This course (INF2226H — Queer GLAM) provides an introduction to queer experiences and queer studies — including intersections of race, gender, and sexuality – within the context of Galleries, Libraries, Archives, and Museums (GLAM). The purpose of this seminar is to examine, synthesize, and understand a range of critical pressure points that have been central to queer experiences in the context of cultural heritage institutions, public history, community outreach, and “information labor” and “knowledge work.” Conversely, we will ask, how do GLAM institutions shape queer identity, activism, sociability, sex, art, and politics?
