CHID 496 C (B Term) – DANCING TO OUR OWN BEAT & EXPERIENCING HISTORY:

THE 2011 VANCOUVER CANADA PRIDE FESTIVAL AND THE DYKE PARADE

Friday July 29 – Sunday July 31, 2011

$330 course fee required for 3 days lodging, transportation and events, financial aid eligible. Passport required.

Registration SLN: 10671

2 credits, Credit/No Credit, 10 students maximum.

Vancouver Pride Festival began in 1972 with a small contingent of courageous participants and a modest program of picnics, speakers and demonstrations; and has grown to become the city’s largest public event, with 800,000 celebrants and a densely-programmed month of parades, dance parties and cultural activities, supported by hundreds of queer organizations, unions, political parties, city and federal departments, and corporations. The more recent and modest Dyke March highlights the contributions of queer women to city life. The study abroad course will examine the evolution in theory and practice of Vancouver’s queer community, and the importance of documenting its ongoing growth and change.
