Platform for this section will be "Canvas" Topic: Early Modern Trans Studies: Topic:Early Modern Trans Studies - This course introduces students to an archive of early modern texts that engage gender nonconformism, proto-transgender identities, transformation, and imagined genders. We will pair early modern drama, poetry, court cases, political tracts, and other texts with readings from contemporary transgender and queer theorists. Topics will include: colonial gender imperatives, medicalization, gender euphoria, rogue sexualities, and self-fashioning. Together, we will theorize the connections and potential that the long history of trans bodies might have for contemporary trans social issues and activisms. Meets w/ENGL 325 (CRN 59287)
