Queer and Trans Historical Linguistics (QTHL) is a rapidly emerging subfield in Language, Gender and Sexuality Studies. We now have a rich archive of information to show queer language can be explored historically, and to show that historical linguistic inquiry can address queer themes relevant to discussions of discourse and text in the present time.
