Queer History Lecture

Regina Kunzel holds the Doris Stevens Chair and is professor of History and Gender and Sexuality Studies at Princeton University. Kunzel’s work focuses on histories of sexuality in carceral spaces, and on the twined histories of sexual deviance and normalcy.   Kunzel’s most recent book, Criminal Intimacy: Prison and the Uneven History of Modern American Sexuality (Univ. of Chicago Press, 2008), received many awards including the Lambda Literary Award, the American Historical Association’s John Boswell Prize, and the MLA’s Alan Bray Memorial Book Award.

She is also the author of Fallen Women, Problem Girls: Unmarried Mothers and the Professionalization of Social Work, 1890 to 1945 (Yale Univ. Press, 1993), as well as articles on transgender studies, disability studies, the history of prison sexual culture, single pregnancy, and gender and professionalization.  Kunzel has received fellowships from the ACLS, the National Endowment for the Humanities, the Stanford Humanities Center, and the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study.

This event is sponsored by the Center for the Study of Women in Society and cosponsored by the Department of History and the Department of Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies.
