Laurel Iber,

Laurel Iber

My research focuses on the construction and representation of gender, sex, and sexuality in nineteenth-century France, particularly within the spheres of literature, art history, and legal medicine. I devote special attention to marginal figures such as the "hermaphrodite," the "androgyne," and the "sexual invert," as they were called in nineteenth-century terms.
