This week’s readings discuss how public institutions, spaces, and concerns shape visions of (proper) intimate life. For this week’s, answer the following questions using specific examples from the readings:
How are alternative or non-normative visions of intimacy renegotiating, challenging, or “rewriting” dominant visions of “intelligible” intimacy.
(500-600 words. You should give specific examples from at least two class readings. You must properly cite the readings to receive full credit. Citations should look like this: (Garcia 61) or (Garcia 2012: 61), for example. If you are paraphrasing a very general idea in the reading, you do not need to include a page number. However, direct quotes always require citations, and paraphrases of very specific ideas should have citations as well.)
