Nonconforming Before Genderqueer

I will be joining the faculty of the Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art as a part-time assistant professor this fall. During the upcoming semester I will be teaching a seminar entitled Nonconforming Before Genderqueer, which examines the history of transgender and intersex representation from the Middle Ages to the present in Europe and America.

The courses investigates how art and literature have been used to imagine alternatives to the gender binary, focusing on the period between 1750 and 1950. Students will make individual research appointments at the Morgan Library and Museum and class sessions will be held at the Whitney Museum of American Art and Newark Museum of Art.
