Lavery hosted many engaging lectures on the Sitcom as it relates to race, gender, and class. “Many people misinterpret affirming care as proceeding to social and medical transition in all cases without delay, but the reality is much more complex.” Diane Ehrensaft, another highly regarded clinician, sounded a similar tune: “This is what I tell kids all the time, particularly teenagers,” she said.

Where Romantics had treated literary achievement as attained only by inspiration, Victorian realists insisted that it can – and must – be acquired through methodical labor, on the part of both writers and readers.

This is a vital scientific finding.

Lavery, who was hired as a professor in Victorian literature in 2013, became interested in trans studies after reading the work of 19th century writer George Eliot. “Informed way,” in this case, means acknowledging that the Dutch clinic appears to have racked up some impressive results so far, but that there are also some limitations to what can be drawn from them. Also, Lavery would really bluntly shut down some people's opinions; it cultivated a kind of restricted discussion. Next to Matthew McConaughey (in all his roles), this man is my personal hero.

She's brilliant and encourages free thought and emphasizes the importance of asking questions. Professor Lavery is my favorite professor at Berkeley--you should take any class if she's teaching it.

“For example, if a young boy likes to wear dresses in a neighborhood in which aggression can be expected, they could come to an understanding with their son that he only wears dresses at home,” they write.

My current book project, "Getting Better: Realism, Repetition, and the Rhetoric of Technique," explores the relationship between classic literary realism, especially in the work of George Eliot, and another modern genre: texts which offered practical instructions about apparently ineffable phenomena. And I taught a trans studies class to undergraduates in the English department for the first time. Dear John, Nancy, and Laura, I am heartbroken. One of the other things right now about being in queer community and being under lockdown, for me at least, is that I just miss a lot of people. Such an approach may appear straightforward at first pass, but a conceptual treatment model for which the underlying definition describes a single moment in time applied to the dynamic changes that occur in the process of child and adolescent identity and brain development is a challenge. And if I can do that while being visibly trans, then that is an advantage to other people.”.

There are some concrete examples of what all this looks like in practice in my Atlantic article — check out the Orion Foss and Delta stories.

Grace Lavery is an associate professor in the Department of English at UC Berkeley and a general editor of Transgender Studies Quarterly.Her first book, Quaint, Exquisite: Victorian Aesthetics and the Idea of Japan was published by Princeton UP in 2019 and her scholarly essays have appeared in Critical Inquiry, Differences, TSQ, ELH, PMLA, and elsewhere.

And, you know, I think often about the ways in which younger trans people develop techniques, skills, habits for managing transition, and I just think, “I feel too old for this.”. Doesn't give students enough time to think about the answer clearly. What she discovered were “deeper and richer ways of thinking about gendered language and identity claims” than she had expected. let me show you around. That brought a reduction in stress. the content was the highlight, his witty comments were a nice cushion.

How did you feel about Pride this year given everything that’s going on in the world—the pandemic, the Black Lives Matter movement? They deserve to have their identities validated. (Briefly, for those unfamiliar with my work, some other stuff I’ve written on this and adjacent subjects: Here’s my piece on a gender-identity clinic that was closed because of what appeared, in light of my reporting, to be false and overblown claims about the controversial sex researcher running it, who eventually was awarded a large settlement because of those claims; here’s my Atlantic cover story on TGNC young people and detransitioners and desisters that caused some controversy; here’s a feature story on a promising approach to get people to be less transphobic — or at least less supportive of transphobic legislation — that I wish people would read because the activists and researchers behind it have so much to teach anyone interested in making the world a little bit better; here’s a piece on a personality characteristic that appears to be linked to transphobia; here’s a blog post about how a lack of bathroom access could increase trans people’s suicide risk; and here’s an “as told to” photo essay with Laura Jane Grace of Against Me!

We then took sessions into a completely different direction: We talked about family, we talked about the gender roles, we talked about the upbringing, we talked about this kid’s father and the relationship with the father, and we talked about all sorts of different things that were not necessarily directly related to gender. In reading the paper, I detected a great deal of overlap between what the Dutch clinic does and what goes on at the affirmative clinics whose clinicians I interviewed (clinicians to whom I’d eagerly refer any kid who might have gender dysphoria): All these clinics take assessment very seriously, and take careful, individualized approaches to each patient that involve, among other things, exploring family dynamics, making sure a kid feels safe and nurtured in his or her everyday life, dealing with co-occurring mental-health problems if there are any, and, in many cases given the correlation between gender dysphoria and autism spectrum disorders, also providing support centered on a child or adolescent’s ASD. My main issue was that I didn't know most of my grade going into the final. Then this blog's the place for you.

Before I begin, I should point out that I’m responding to a tweetstorm with many, many words expressed in a different, much more expansive format.

She's witty and hilarious while also clearly caring deeply for her students and the subject matter. I started this site in 2010 as a portfolio for my design work. It really feels like he wants you to learn, not just jump through a hoop. https://english.berkeley.edu/profiles/386.

I miss the sort of dynamism of being out there in the world. Grace Lavery: Brooklyn has been a strange place.

GL: You know, it’s funny. Daniel’s portion has not been published.
