About the Author

Thomas A. King is associate professor of English at Brandeis University, where he teaches early modern and eighteenth-century studies, gender and queer studies, and performance studies. Prior to his teaching career, King worked as an A.E.A. stage manager in Chicago. He is the author of volume one of The Gendering of Men, 1600-1750: Volume 1, The English Phallus, also published by the University of Wisconsin Press.


"The Gendering of Men is a wonderful book. . . . it is sure to make a splash in GLBT studies and history, in queer studies, and in eighteenth-century studies. Building on previous scholarly works that interrogate notions of sexuality and gender in the 'long eighteenth century (1660-1800), ' King complicates and clarifies ways in which we can understand early-modern and modern sexual and gender identities."--Hans Turley, University of Connecticut

"Dazzling in the depth and breadth of scholarly inquiry that has gone into the book's production, the reach of King's argument will do much to persuade those less or little interested in theater to think again about the relevance of this genre to any research of the period."--Susan Bennett, University of Calgary, Canada

"Those interested in queer studies, performance studies, and early modern culture will find this book valuable."--Choice
