I am putting together a panel on the intersections of modernism, gender, and sexualities for the 2010 meeting of the Modernist Studies Association in Victoria, B.C. Why is the transgression of gender and sexual norms central to modernist literature and culture? How does modernism shape our understanding of the relationship between sex, gender, and sexuality? What gendered and sexed identities are made possible through modernist cultural production? How relevant are they to contemporary rearticulations of embodiment, including transgender and genderqueer subjectivities?
