Meredith Lee received their PhD from the University of California, Irvine in Culture and Theory. Their research analyzes the formation of the wrong body narrative (a man trapped in a woman’s body and vice versa) within sexological and psychiatric discourse. Drawing from sexological literature, anti-abolitionist texts, theology, transgender studies, and black studies, their work attempts to address the role (anti)blackness played in the creation of the wrong body narrative and thus in our contemporary understanding of transsexuality and transgender identity.
