Description

Visualizing Trans Identity in Early 20th-Century Germany: Photography in Sexual Science and Emerging Trans Subcultures

Lecture by Katie Sutton

Tuesday, October 1

3:00 PM

Denny Hall 359

Historians have paid considerable attention to the role of patient case histories in shaping modern medicine and a new field of “sexual science” from the late 19th century, but so far they have focused relatively little on the role of visual technologies such as photography in these shifts.

Dr. Katie Sutton is a Senior Lecturer of German and Gender Studies at the Australian National University. Her research and teaching interests focus particularly on German 20th and 21st-century culture, literature, and history, from the social and cultural upheaval of the Weimar Republic to German cinema revival of the 2000s. Much of her research deals with the history of gender and sexuality.
