Regina Kunzel is the Larned Professor of History and Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies at Yale University. Kunzel’s work focuses on histories of sexuality in carceral spaces, and on the twined histories of sexual deviance and normalcy. She is the author of Criminal Intimacy: Prison and the Uneven History of Modern American Sexuality, Fallen Women, Problem Girls: Unmarried Mothers and the Professionalization of Social Work, 1890 to 1945, and articles on queer history, trans studies, disability studies, and the history of incarceration. Her current project explores the encounter of queer and gender-variant people with psychiatry in the twentieth-century United States.
