PSCI 361 The Politics of LGBT Movements and Rights 4.0 Credits

In many countries, the subject of LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, and trans) rights has entered the political discourse with unprecedented speed and suddenness. This course is designed to gain leverage on the processes that explain this rapid global expansion of LGBT rights by surveying an eclectic literature on comparative and transnational LGBT politics. Specially, we will ask: What factors have facilitated the mobilization of LGBT people? How and why have public opinion and laws towards LGBT people changed differently across various countries? To answer these questions, we will take an in-depth empirical look at movements representing LGBT people and their successes/losses—as well as those of their opposition—across time and place, from the late 1800s to present day and across the globe.
