‘Gender Outlaws’ of 19c. France explored in Professor Linton’s new book
Anne Linton, associate professor of Modern Languages and Literatures, has published a new book “Unmaking Sex: The Gender Outlaws of 19th-Century France” (Cambridge University Press).
“‘Unmaking Sex’ is an impeccably researched and original study of the intersex phenomenon in medical and literary discourses of 19th century France,” University of Pennsylvania Professor Andrea Goulet said. “Through expert synthesis of archival research into over 200 medical cases, Linton provides a cultural prehistory to today’s widely debated topic of gender boundaries.”
