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)
