Maria Frangos: “Queer Morphologies”

Maria Frangos: “Queer Morphologies”

Professor Frangos’s “Queer Morphologies” explores metamorphosis and non-human embodiment in literature from the Middle Ages through the Renaissance as sites of queer possibility and potentiality. The project asks how human/animal metamorphoses surface and resurface to produce and negotiate nonnormative configurations of sexuality, gender, and kinship.

Professor Frangos is Visiting Assistant Professor of Literature at UCSC.
