The diaries of Louis Graydon Sullivan
Barry Reay

5 A transgender story: the diaries of Louis Graydon Sullivan Although it may be an exaggeration to claim a ‘transgender turn’ in recent times, it is certainly true that what is now termed ‘trans*’ has come to feature prominently in contemporary culture and cultural history.1 The starting point for this history is contested. Some have maintained that convictions of gender dislocation have always been there: ‘one indisputable fact remains: transsexualism exists and has always existed’.2 For others, however, transsexuality was a late twentieth-century phenomenon

Doris Leibetseder

Introduction This chapter presents the first outcomes of my Marie Skłodowska-Curie Individual Fellowship Program (EU Horizon 2020, Grant Agreement 749218) 1 on queer- and trans-inclusive assisted reproduction involving studies of six European countries: Austria, Estonia, Poland, Spain, Sweden and the UK. In this research I examine the experiences, practices and possible improvements of preserving fertility and achieving reproduction of queer and transgender people in those six European Union (EU) states. This enables the comparison between more liberal

While historians of the welfare state and public healthcare system have often taken a top-down approach, focusing on the role of grand ideas, ideology and central public institutions such as the Directorate of Health (Nordby, 1989 ; Berg, 2009 ), less attention has been paid to the significance of mundane medical and psychiatric practices. Using selected findings from my research on the history of transgender medicine in Norway in the twentieth century, this chapter takes a bottom-up approach

Five directors

"What does queer signify in twenty-first-century French film? How are lesbian, gay, and trans* characters represented on screen? The book responds to these questions via the cinema of five emblematic directors: Jacques Martineau, Olivier Ducastel, Alain Guiraudie, Sébastien Lifshitz, and Céline Sciamma. From gay sex at a nudist beach to lesbian love at a high school swimming pool, from gay road trips across France to transgender journeys through time, the films treated in this study raise a host of key questions about queerness in this century. From award-winners such as Stranger by the Lake and Portrait of a Lady on Fire to the lesser-known Family Tree and Open Bodies, these productions gesture toward an optimistic future for LGBTQ characters and for the world in which they live, love, and desire. Comprehensive in scope, Queer cinema in contemporary France traces the development of queerness across the directors’ careers, from their earliest, often unknown works to their later, major films. Whether they are white, beur, or black, whether they are lesbian, gay, trans*, or queer, the characters open up oppressive notions of hetero- and cisnormativity to something new, something unexpected, and something oriented towards the future.

Non-binary youth and affective (re)orientations to family

Introduction In this chapter, I analyse the experiences of gender non-binary individuals using the web of affects and obligations experienced within the family. I seek to show how the ordinariness of family intimacy is transformed when it encounters transgender non-binary lives. Building on research on the everyday lives of gender and/or sexual

Practices, routines and experiences

This collective volume looks at European psychiatry in the second half of the twentieth century through a variety of practices that were experienced and routinised in the mental health field after World War II. Case studies from across Europe allow one to appreciate how new ‘ways of doing’ contributed to transform the field, beyond the watchwords of deinstitutionalisation, the introduction of neuroleptics, centrality of patients, humanisation of spaces and overcoming of asylum-era habits. Through a variety of sources and often adopting a small-scale perspective, the chapters closely examine the way new practices took shape and how they installed themselves, eventually facing resistance, injecting new purposes and contributing to enlarging psychiatry’s fields of expertise, therefore blurring its once-more-defined boundaries. The book has four sections: visions, experimentation, reflections and crossing boundaries. The first focuses on experiences that were viewed, lived and narrated by the protagonists as unique and utopian. This character of novelty is also questioned through the patient’s perspective. The following section focuses on some cases whose protagonists were aware that they were trialling new ways of doing. Although these did not necessarily become mainstream, new frameworks of therapeutic intervention were shaped, and feebler protocolar procedures and eclectic appropriations were allowed for. The third section shows how the actors were called to reflect on practices and give them meaning, adopting a reflective habit that questioned the very role of each protagonist of the therapeutic scene. The last section analyses how psychiatry entered fields of expertise other than those usually assumed.
