This course explores the changing historical relationship between the body's biological sex, individual subjectivity, and identity. It asks how culture shapes scientific understandings and possibilities of sex, gender and identity. And it seeks to make historical sense of the shifts that have enabled a revolutionary increase in transgender existence today by comparing histories of transgender in specific cultural contexts. When possible, we analyze the role of subjectivity—one's sense of one's relationship to the physical body—in the politics of transgender identities. We examined and critique contemporary theories about the category of "transgender" and its relationship to the body, self, and physical sex, which is understood as malleable rather than fixed.
When Offered Spring.
