Gay 4 History: A Dialogue Across Eras Haymarket Books Live

    • Society & Culture

A conversation examining the history of struggles over gender and sexuality as it relates to emancipatory struggles today.
About this event

What do emancipatory struggles over gender and sexuality have to do with history, and what does history do for the wider project of emancipation as such? The authors and editors of Histories of the Transgender Child, Transgender Marxism, and Sexual Hegemony discuss the difficulty of drawing directly from, or detaching ourselves altogether from nominally discontinuous social categories, and how historical citation operates to transform the present.
