ENGL 081. Transgender Life Writing

This course engages the work of writers who identify as transgender, asking about the relationship between intersectional transgender experience and life narrative. How has the closet typically structured narrative and subjectivity? How does transgender writing redefine ideas of character and continuity? How do narrative and intersectional gender theory form and inform one another? How do various writers configure transgendered bodies?
