Introduction to Queer Studies (WST 305)
Tu & Th 9:40-11:20am
In WST 305—the only Augsburg course devoted exclusively to queer studies—we will raise and address, though obviously not settle, these issues:
• How are sexual and gender norms constructed historically and culturally?
• How do sexual and gender norms, culturally and historically understood, affect LGBTQIA+, cisgender, and heterosexual people’s development and self-perceptions?
• How do past, recent, and developing definitions and theories of human sex, gender, and sexuality generated by LGBTQIA+ persons and communities present alternatives to dominant cisgender & heterosexual traditions?
We apply theories to current, historical, and cultural concerns. We will make use of virtual cultural, artistic, and speaker events related to our topic.
Though the course is designed for upper-level students, there are a variety of possible prerequisites that qualify students to participate with our permission. Please contact either Prof. Doug Green (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Prof. Mary Lowe (email@example.com) if you are interested in the course and/or have questions about it, especially regarding prerequisites.
We hope you’ll join us for Introduction to Queer Studies this Spring!

While you can’t travel to Guatemala this spring break, let Guatemala (AND El Salvador!) come to you! Join one of these cross listed classes examining religion and social change in the Central American context – and meet your Augsburg Experience requirement at the same time!
RLN 409-B Study Abroad Topics: Faith, Vocation, & Social Change – A Virtual Immersion
RLN 480-A Vocation and the Christian Faith (Also meets the Keystone requirement for some majors!)
These courses will meet in Spring 2021: face-to-face on Tuesdays and on Zoom on Thursdays. You’ll interact directly with speakers from El Salvador and Guatemala. In addition, course activities will include things like video tours of specific locations with commentary by local people (translated from Spanish or with captions).
There will be an extra course fee of $100 so that we can fairly pay the AMAZING Central American speakers you will get to meet and talk with. If you have questions about these classes, please reach out to Professor Matt Maruggi at email@example.com.

This year, EDTalks will be pre-recorded and have a community “premiere” on Zoom hosted by CTL at 3:10pm on days when there is a faculty meeting. These premieres will end no later than 3:30pm to allow plenty of time to log into the Faculty Zoom meeting early. After the premier, the recording will be posted on the CTL website, along with any resources (if applicable).
