A Specialty in Lesbian Dance Theory

You may think this is a joke, but it is not.  Absolutely not.  Denison University is a US university located in the state of Ohio.  Denison is:

is a private, coeducational, and residential four-year liberal arts college in Granville, Ohio, about 30 mi (48 km) east of Columbus. Founded in 1831, it is Ohio’s second-oldest liberal arts college.

About 180 years old!

Denison offers a program in Queer Studies.  Yes.  You read that correctly:

The discipline of Queer Studies encompasses theories and thinkers from numerous fields.

These fields include

cultural studies, gay and lesbian studies, transgender studies, race studies, women’s and gender studies, literature, history, film, media, postmodernism, postcolonialism, and more.

Transgender studies and more!

Students must complete core course in Introduction to Queer Studies (QS 101), Queer Theory (QS 268/300), and Senior Seminar (QS 400); and electives include:

  • OMM 229 Mediating Gender and Sexuality
  • COMM 329 Gender and Communication
  • COMM 349 The Trouble with Normal
  • COMM 402 Language, Identity, and Politics
  • COMM 406 Rhetoric and Social Movements
  • DANCE 240 Special Topics in Dance

So there you have it.  You can study Lesbian Dance Theory in a US college.  But don’t fret.  This will likely be available in an Australian University soon, unless it is already offered.

For sure the employment and income prospects for these graduates will be solid.  The Australian Human Rights Commission must certainly need people with such credentials.

    I’m imagining the look on a prospective employers face when they are informed that you have formal qualifications in Queer studies.

    Do students (or their parents) pay full fees for this rancid garbage?

  3. Tim Soup-de-jour could be a prof!

    Good idea to turn out highly qualified poofs and lesbians , been a need for that in education , bet none of the staff or “graduates support Trump.
    The left are seriously insane , really barking mad .

    This cannot be considered academic in any way. There is no rational inquiry or critical thinking associated with it. Rather, it is political indoctrination. When you cannot challenge theories based upon facts and logic and by subjecting them to analysis and experimentation, you have a religion instead of a science.

    An evolutionary dead end?

    Look on the bright side: in the USA the student that chooses such subjects has to pay the full price for them.

    Not so here.

    One good thing , Trump really pisses these maggots off ,his opponents are seriou tossers ,wankers of the first order,no wonder he’s winning .

    You’ll find that the market for such a specialisation has grown since you were a lad.
    Safe Schools curricula aren’t developed by agriculturists, or engineers, you know.

    Throw in Australian permanent residency with a pathway to citizenship and stand back so you don’t get knocked down in the rush.

    They probably wind up working in HR.
