Gender in American political institutions is simultaneously under-defined and over-determined. This talk will describe government efforts to reveal authentic gender identity and to control individuals’ gender presentation. Transgender and gender non-conforming people are subject to two sorts of impulses to fix gender – first, to pin it down, and then, to “correct” it. Using examples ranging from incarceration to healthcare to education to marriage and child custody disputes, we will explore the consequences of official identity declaration and will discuss the complexities of binary gender categories. We will talk together about how gender categories are defined and enforced.
