Sex, Genocide, and Staying Young Forever: 
A History of Transgender Hormone Therapy and the Politics of Objectivity

Conflicts over transgender healthcare have rocketed to the forefront of public consciousness in recent years, particularly over the right of trans adults and minors to access sex hormonal medications. While transgender hormone therapy and the controversies around it are often cast as unprecedented, they are actually the product of decades- and even centuries-old practices in the regulation of sex hormonal medications, gender, and sexuality. This talk will provide a broad overview of this history of the development of sex hormonal medications and how they came to be associated with transgender healthcare, as well as the parallel history of how transgender people navigated and continue to navigate the regulatory landscape that medical contact entwines them in- resisting narratives of transgender people as lacking history, agency, or scientific legibility.

This lecture is open to the public and will be held in the Searle Seminar Room in the Lurie Research Building (303 E Superior), Chicago Campus. For those outside the Chicago area and anyone who would prefer to attend remotely, a Zoom option is also available.
