Abstract [sv]

In the Fall of 2001 the first undergraduate course on Lesbian and Gay Studies was introduced in Sweden - in Umeå. The aim of this interdisciplinary course is, in contrast to similar courses on e.g. Queer Studies at other universities in the country, to give students a deepend knowledge in, and a broader understanding of how "same sexed relations" can be interpreted in Modern History, Modern Literature, and the Media. In this article experiences of, and thoughts on this unique setting are discussed.

The course grants for 10 credits, and divides into four parts: introduction, historical studies, literature, and media and communication. Each part contains guiding lectures, interactive workshops, and formal seminars. Students also write individual papers: methodologically based on e.g. Queer Theory or Queer Readings. By and large, this is a course which stimulates students to raise new questions, and to analyse and deconstruct by nature given concepts as gender, sexuality, and identity.
