Criminalized Cross-Dressing: Policing Gender Expression

June 8 @ 5:30 PM - 6:30 PM EDT

Funded by Mass Humanities
Cost: Free

The current trend of criminalizing trans issues is nothing new—the first major wave of anti-trans legislation started in the 1840s lasted for more than a century. In this virtual talk, Dr. Susan Stryker briefly surveys this history, starting with the first prosecutions for cross-gender expression in the early colonial period, including seventeenth-century New England.

Susan Stryker is Professor Emerita of Gender and Women’s Studies at the University of Arizona, and a 2022-23 Stanford University Humanities Institute External Faculty Fellow. She is the author of Transgender History: The Roots of Today’s Revolution.

Tickets are free; donations are encouraged.

Please call 617-994-6678 for more information.
