Backlash and Queer in America

Last thing first: I've been calling the book Queer in America by the wrong title. It's not Out in America, it's Queer in America.

We're spending the next three class meetings (starting Thursday) reading from Susan Faludi's Backlash. The book as a whole is too long for us to read it all closely (although I do recommend the whole thing) so we'll focus on the discussions relevant to our media concerns.

For Thursday: 1 (Introduction), 2 (Myths of the Backlash), 3 (Then and Now).

For next Tuesday: 4 (Media), 5 (Movies), 6 (TV).

For next Thursday: 7 (Fashion), 8 (Beauty), 12 (Pop Psychology).
