I Was A Queer Child And So Were You
Kathryn Bond Stockton, Ph.D.
Distinguished Professor of English

Dean, School for Cultural and Social Transformation
Presented in a humorous, accessible style, weaving memoir through cutting-edge theory, this talk will stretch what you think you know (and our culture thinks it knows) about important matters surrounding genitals, clothing, and kissing—even reading. Also, quite centrally, this talk will consider the queerness of children: the new battleground where issues involving queer rights are currently being fought. What kinds of issues for everyone’s childhood—and, for that matter, your own adulthood—turn around issues for gay and trans kids? The answers may surprise you.
