Maria Frangos: “Queer Morphologies”
March 2, 2011 @ 12:15 pm - 1:30 pm | Stevenson Fireside Lounge
Professor Frangos’s “Queer Morphologies” explores metamorphosis and non-human embodiment in literature from the Middle Ages through the Renaissance as sites of queer possibility and potentiality. The project asks how human/animal metamorphoses surface and resurface to produce and negotiate nonnormative configurations of sexuality, gender, and kinship.
Professor Frangos is Visiting Assistant Professor of Literature at UCSC.
Sponsored by the Center for Cultural Studies with staff support provided by the Institute for Humanities Research, UCSC.
