Sean’s research attempts to understand how changes in epistemological approaches to the body shifted over the course of the twentieth century, especially as medical and legal authorities began to attempt to account for gender and sexual diversity. By understanding this as a project indissolubly related to practices of history, he tries to draw together the complications of queer historiography and those associated with the criminalization and pathologization of queer people and communities. Essentially, this project concerns the queer politics of information.
