CSRE 24SI: The Continuity of Abu Nuwas's Homoeroticism in Arab Queer Literary Modernity

This course will hold space for discussions surrounding the precolonial poetic foundations of Arab Queerness, the continuity of such foundations in its modern literary representations, and he potential Arab Queer futurities that such modern representations move toward. How are representations of homoeroticism in Abu Nuwas's poetry definitive of a pre-colonial Arab Queer identity that is separate from Western definitions of Queerness rooted in the Gay Liberation movement of the 1970s? Do modern literary representations of queerness in Arab literature, even after US sociopolitical imperialism, carry a central understanding of Arab Queerness? How is the earlier explored Pre-Colonial Arab Queerness carried forward in these modern Arab Queer literary representations? Are there differences? How do these literary understandings and analyses inform the greater theoretical discussion of queer past, present, and future? Readings will include poetry by classical Arab-Persian poet Abu Nuwas, and novels by Saleem Haddad, Abdellah Taïa, and Mohammed Abdel Nabi. These works will be discussed within a theoretical framework informed by the works of Joseph Massad, Sara Ahmed, Jose Esteban Muñoz, Eve Sedgwick, and Jaspir Puar.
