Penis Politics and Gender History

My friend and colleague, Rachel Hope Cleves, has written a commentary on the history of penis politics in the American presidential politics. This piece responds to the recent allusions to Donald Trump’s phallus in the United States presidential primaries by tracing the history of penis politics in early presidential politics.

Rachel is a historian who works on gender, sexuality, and political culture in the early United States. She currently serves as Professor of History at the University of Victoria in British Columbia and previously taught in the Department of History at Northern Illinois University.

See Rachel Hope Cleves’s essay at the blog, Notches.

According to its website, “Notches is a peer-reviewed, collaborative and international history of sexuality blog that aims to get people inside and outside the academy thinking about sexuality in the past and in the present.”
