Content and structure elements

Scope and content

The posters in this collection were created by students for a project answering the question "What is Queer?" The project was part of Dr. Steve Butterman's Queer Studies class at the University of Miami. The posters in the collection present a variety of visual and textual representation of the students' interpretations of what it means to be queer, ranging in focus from familial concerns and sexual health/HIV to media representation, politics and fashion. Many of the posters discuss the history of the use of  the term "queer" and question the idea of a single definition of queer.
