Bye Bye Binary: Writing Histories of Non-Normative Gender
A Symposium with: Sarah Haley, UCLA; Elizabeth Reis, Macaulay Honors College, City University of New York; Susan Stryker, University of Arizona
Explores the methods of theories of historical work on non-normative genders. What happens when we move beyond the cis/trans binary and look at how gender – in conception and everyday life – refuses, exceeds, and undermines its binary configurations? How might we write histories that refuse to take the gender binary for granted?
