Transgender history has developed at an incredible pace over the last five years with new research illustrating gender diversity across all time periods and regions.

This seminar discusses the emergence of the field of transgender history, the challenges of researching and writing transgender history and why it is important.

The ‘where’ in the title refers simultaneously to the geographical range of transgender history, the issues around subsuming different cultural practices of gender and sexuality into ‘transgender’ history, and the direction the field is going In.


This event will be particularly useful for all trans-inclusive visitors, academics and students.

Please note this is a hybrid event and can be joined either in-person or online.
