Join top scholars in historical queer and trans studies for a full-day symposium, “The Trans Nineteenth Century,” on April 28th, 2023, 10am-5pm (time is tentative). This symposium brings together six scholars in historical trans studies in the U.S. and beyond to discuss their ongoing and new work in the field. The event, featuring Kadji Amin, Jules Gill-Peterson, Emma Heaney, Greta LaFleur, Jen Manion, and Mark Rifkin investigates the deeper history of trans ways of being in through the lens of the long nineteenth century in America, as well as interrogating queer and trans stances toward historicity and genealogy. Please join us for a series of three panels, conversation, and refreshments.
