"This 10-week seminar is an interdisciplinary introduction to LGBTQ+ studies as they relate to the postcolonial Africa, Asia, and the Middle East, as well as Post-communist Eastern Europe in the twenty-first century.

Its aim is to decenter and globalize issues from queer studies on the complex cases of the Global South and the former Eastern Block, to question and enrich the contemporary westcentric LGBTQ+ studies and theory. Together with the participants, this seminar will explore nonheteronormative gender and sexuality in cross-cultural perspective in various legal, political and national frameworks outside the West, including developments that have emerged in light of indigenous, postcolonial, diasporic, racial and migration/exile approaches."
