Colonial Genders, Militarized Sexes, and the Exchange Rate of Early Modern Transition

March 28 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm


Early modern trans studies offer a more nuanced approach to gender in historical periods. However, scholars must also consider how sex and gender were used as regulatory biopolitical tools of the state. This talk by Sawyer Kemp explores how gender was leveraged by economic and colonial imperatives through early modern trans characters.

Sawyer K. Kemp is an assistant professor in English at Queen’s College, City University of New York. They research contemporary performance, Shakespearean drama, and accessibility in the arts. They’ve published articles on motion capture Shakespeare video games, transgender representation in Shakespeare Studies, and more.
