Description

In 2014, Time Magazine announced “The Transgender Tipping Point” as the “next civil rights frontier.” Even as transgender celebrities including Caitlyn Jenner and Laverne Cox have drawn national audiences, bathrooms have become battlegrounds for gender justice, and trans people have been targeted by hate crimes and state violence. While trans rights may appear to be a relatively new phenomenon, even a “frontier,” transgender and gender non-conforming people and communities have a long history in American Culture.

This course seeks to explore contemporary transgender movements, politics, and identities in historical context. Throughout the course, we will be particularly attentive to the ways that race, class, citizenship, and ability are connected to gender variance, and we will highlight the scholarship and activism of trans people of color.

Course Requirements:

We will engage in hands-on research at Michigan libraries and digital archives, and all students will research a relevant historical topic of choice. Grading in this course will be based on: engaged participation in course activities, regular reading responses, and a final project and presentation.

Intended Audience:

Any students interested in Transgender Studies are welcome! Some familiarity with LGBTQ and/or Gender Studies, including coursework or other experience, is advised.
