Melody Jackson: Introduction

Hello,

My name is Melody and I’ll be graduating this semester! I’m studying sociology and my minor is LGBT studies (although, it was called Queer studies). Academically, I’m particularly interested in the intersections of critical race theory and queer/feminist theory as well as social movements. I’m also interested in representations of race and sexuality in the media (i.e. film, music, and social media). As part of my minor, I’ve taken quite a few queer centered courses, but I’m interested in this class because of its focus on transgender communities and identities.  Where as, in other class,  I feel that transgender experiences are generally clumped into queer studies. In this class, I hope to explore this subject thoroughly and gain a deeper insight and understanding of trans* theories and experiences.
