The course sheds light on gender and sexual diversity in both modern and pre-modern East Asian environments, and it examines related floating identities mainly through examples from literature, performing arts, art history and popular media.In doing so, the course examines the cultural features that seemingly resemble transnational phenomenas, while undermining essentialist determinism and the dominance of modern Western models.

The course consists of one module 7.5 ECTS.
The course is given in the form of lectures and seminars.
