At some point, I had hoped to have a section on queer issues in literature and film, and already kind of regret not doing it. Perhaps next time. Four works of literature came to mind right away. Virginia Woolf’s Orlando has a wonderful adaptation starring Tilda Swinton. The World Unseen is a great novel and film about queer issues in the Arab world. Two Shakespeare plays also came to mind: My absolute favourite As You Like It, with its disguises, and Cymberline, which Woolf writes a lot about.
I can always teach those if/when I teach Shakespeare.

Here is how I think I will break up papers: One: The Odyssey and Hamlet. Two: Dracula, Mrs. Dalloway, The Moral Storm. Three: Speak and V For Vendetta. I think this works both chronologically and thematically for the most part. The final paper will be on a literary work of their choice (out of a list I supply).
These papers, I think, are going to be 1,000 words, 1,250 words, 1,500 words, and 2,000 words.
