Course Description

This seminar challenges students to consider “queer” and “trans” as categories of both experience and analysis in the historical record. We will first take on the theoretical framing of terms such as “queer” and “trans” and question their meaning and usefulness in a historical context. We will consider how we, as historians, can access the past so often rendered invisible in the archives. The course will also seek to understand dominant narratives of gender and sexuality in various periods and contexts in Europe, and then explore what it looked like when individuals and communities acted in ways that did not align with contemporary expectations.
