Children’s Literature: Sexual Identity, Gender, and ..

This talk gives a broad overview of gender beyond the binary of male and female, divided roughly into three sections. The first addresses gender diversity in Western contexts, exploring the connection between gender and sexuality by looking at the English Mollies. The Italian Femminielli, and Albanian sworn virgins are also discussed. A cross-cultural consideration of eunuchs then expands the scope to non-western contexts, covering a range of historical and contemporary third (fourth, and fifth!) gender categories – particularly across Asia and the Americas. The journey finishes by returning to the UK, to take a closer look at how ‘non-binary’ has manifested as a category over the last few years.

What effect do hormone uses have on emotions, sensations, sexual expression and desire? This video art exhibition presents the work of 15 artists and collectives who explore the immense role hormones have on our everyday life. The works raise crucial questions about how society influences and regulates gender identity, and capture broader explorations of sexuality and gender fluidity. The featured artists take viewers on sometimes intensely personal journeys and demonstrate the liberation they have experienced through the use of hormones. Other works look at the medicalisation of women’s bodies in relation to birth control, menopause and ageing, and offer an important commentary on how we use hormones to improve and sometimes constrain our lives in ways we rarely consider.

Once traced back to the tastes of individual readers, the stubborn persistence of this imbalance becomes less mystifying. Editors can be shamed or pressured (temporarily, at least) into evening up the gender split in their bylines and book review sections, and some women have begun calling for subscription cancellation drives and other forms of economic protest after the release of the Vida survey results. But reading is a private, willful activity; good luck dictating to anyone which books they should read, let alone like.
