This course examines the intersections of race and sexuality in processes of US state building and struggles over the meaning of citizenship. Focusing on the welfare system, immigration control, the military, and the criminal justice system, it looks at how the institutions that have exhibited the most control over people of color have engaged in some of the severest practices of sexual and gender regulation. The course explores queer theorizations of state power and the implications of centering issues such as welfare, immigration, militarism, and criminal justice within queer politics.
