Mary Cheney signs on with conservative publisher for memoir.

Mary Cheney, the openly gay daughter of Vice President Dick Cheney, has signed on to publish a memoir for a conservative book company.

While Mary Cheney's homosexuality became an issue in the 2004 presidential election, according to an Associated Press report, the book will be her first chance to address the subject.

Republican political strategist Mary Matalin, the head of Simon & Schuster's new conservative publishing subdivision, Threshold, said that Cheney was barred from discussing her personal life* while working as a top aide on her father's 2000 and 2004 campaigns, but that the memoir will give her an opportunity to speak her mind.Read more...Collapse )

Pissy commentary from me: *!!!; **So I assume Mary Matalin is a fan of Sisters then? Does James Carville know?; ***Yah. So unexpected. Homophobia so wasn't a campaign issue. OK, I'm done.

Queer Theory/ Gender Theory Syllabus

I attend a very small liberal arts college on the north side of Chicago. Since I have been begging for this, I have been asked to help come up with a syllabus for a queer theory/ gender theory elective to be given next fall semester.

I've written one of my professor friends at the UofC, but he hasn't gotten back with me yet. So I am coming here for some help. I am wondering if any of you are professors or have taken a class in the same vein that would be willing to share the syllabus.

Or alternately, I am willing to take book suggestions as well.

My school uses no textbooks (not that there are very many on this subject), so please keep that in mind. We stick to original source material.

Thanks so much in advance. I am really excited to get this class at my school. This will be the first time it has been offered (outside of the little taste of it we get in Feminist Theory).
