Location: Wolfson Theatre, Cheng Kin Ku Building
Join Professor Jules Gill-Peterson in conversation with Dr Ida Roland Birkvad and Dr Alexander Stoffel for an event about how to study macrohistories of gender, race, and sexuality.
In current debates about transgender rights, trans people appear as ‘brand new’ and without a history. This myth plays a powerful role in organising the international politics of gender by obscuring long durée histories of gender nonconformity. This also has larger consequences for the way we study history in international studies.
Bringing together perspectives from postcolonialism, gender studies, and Marxism, this event asks how we can study the construction of identity categories across historical periods and geopolitical contexts without erasing their particularities, and why they persist as hierarchies in international politics.
