Queer Studies at UNH
Queer studies is a rapidly growing field of study that focuses on lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer people, their history, and culture. Queer Studies considers sexualities and genders as identities, social statuses, categories of knowledge, and as lenses that help us to frame how we understand our world.
Queer Studies is inter-disciplinary, drawing upon cultural and social history, theory, sociology, psychology, theatre, anthropology, law and political science, among other fields. Because Queer Studies grew out of feminist scholarship into a distinct field of inquiry, the Women's Studies Program houses our Queer Studies Emphasis. Please see the Queer Studies website for more information.
