This paper is for a Queer theory class where we examine what it means to be queer throughout history. The prof has given very vage instructions other than it has to be 2500-3000 words, these are some of her prompts: Choose one of the following binaries and discuss using the texts of your choosing (note that while there is overlap between these binaries, each pairing also invites specific focus): oppression/empowerment, acquiescence/resistance, visibility/erasure, resolution/apparition, or proclamation/suppression. Discuss one of the following in the work(s) of your choice: community, colonization, memory, embodiment, experience, place, anger, sexuality, covering, intersectionality, or troubling normality. The indigenous writers we have looked at have all engaged with the problem of cultural erasure—through suppression, invisibility, exclusion—and the effects of these erasures on lived experience and historical memory. Discuss using the examples of your choice. Many of the indigenous writers posit the idea that sex can be a de-colonizing, even revolutionary act; how do they (individually or collectively) make their case? Many of the authors in this course bring our attention to various discourses the dominant culture has used to suppress diversity—be it medical, anthropological, religious, or legal—what strategies do the writer(s)/artists of your choosing use to affirm a counter discourse?
