“The Trans Nineteenth Century” – Symposium, Friday April 28th, 2023 (Zoom available)

I am delighted to announce a new symposium, “The Trans Nineteenth Century,” featuring six leading scholars on early trans studies in the United States. 

Please join us on Friday, April 28 from 10 am to 5:30 pm for a series of three panels, conversation, and refreshments. Speakers will share papers which investigate deeper histories of trans ways of being through the lens of the long nineteenth century in America, interrogating queer and trans methodologies of historicity and genealogy.

Join us in-person at 15 Seminary Pl, New Brunswick, NJ 08901, Academic Building West room 6051. Portions of the program will also be broadcast via Zoom. Please contact Eagan Dean at e.dean@rutgers.edu for parking permits and Zoom details.

Sincerely yours,

Eagan S. Dean
