Tomorrow I’ll be off to Liverpool where I will be delivering a paper at the Historicising Trans Symposium at John Moores University. I’m looking forward to seeing some old friends (well, friends I have know for a while who are much younger than me), and to meeting a bunch of of new scholars who are into trans history.
My own paper is going to look at problems with the evidence for the existence of trans people, focusing on cases at the Court of Versailles and in the Inca Empire. As this is a trial run for a paper I want to give at a much bigger conference in London next year I probably won’t put it on academia.edu just yet. Sorry, you’ll have to wait a bit.
Sadly all of my friends in Liverpool seem to be on vacation right now, but as you will see from the next post that’s probably just as well.
