My essay, “What’s in a Name: Intersex and Identity”, was selected for and appears in the college textbook, Queer: A Reader for Writers, published this January, 2016, by Oxford University Press. The book includes an interdisciplinary mix of public, academic, and cultural reading selections, and was developed for courses in first-year writing. It provides students with the rhetorical knowledge and analytical strategies required to participate effectively in discussions about queer theory and culture. The essay was originally published on my blog Intersex & Out in May, 2014, and then in The Advocate on May 14, 2014, and will now be read by college students alongside some of my heroes in gender studies. 🙂 I couldn’t be more honored or more grateful to Jason Shneiderman, author of the anthology, and the folks at Oxford U. Press, for their inclusion of my essay and intersex perspectives. Thank you, and thank you Universe!!! 🙂
