LGBT Victorians

Sexuality and Gender in the Nineteenth-Century Archives

Simon Joyce

  • Gives equal consideration to historical people who defined themselves primarily in terms of gender identity or in terms of sexuality/sexual orientation
  • Draws upon original archival research in the legal records (in the case of the "Fanny and Stella" trial), and the unpublished writings and methodological revisions of the writer Edward Carpenter
  • Deploys the insights of transgender studies alongside queer theory and lesbian/gay studies
  • Reimagines and complicates our understanding of the Victorian period by thinking about how British thinkers and writers assessed and responded to larger international movements, including European sexology, the poetry of Walt Whitman, and late-century French erotica
  • Argues that Oscar Wilde should not be the only (or key) figure in our understanding of queer people in nineteenth-century Britain
