THE GAYEST DEGREE EVER AWARDED BY BOSTON COLLEGE

  1. Once upon a time, I earned an MA in 16th century literature from Boston College.
    Probably one of the most gorgeous places in the greater Boston area, BC is a small Jesuit school with both an onsite monastery and seminary.
  2. While there, I focused my work on how people of the 16th century thought about the body by reading theory like this...
  3. And this...
  4. And this.
  5. In my second semester, I took a fabulous class titled, aptly - Sex, Gender, and The Body in Early Modern England - and started reading theory like this...
  6. And this...
  7. And this.
  8. Throw in Foucault...
  9. And some badass early modern drama...
  10. And some weird early modern drama...
  11. And some gaaaaaay early modern drama...
  12. And I started writing papers with titles like this:
    In the Name of the Father: Failed Paternity and Homoerotic Desire in Early Modern England; Traffic In Women: Gender, Magic, and the Calculus of Power in _A Midsummer Night's Dream_; "So is the tongue among our members, that defileth the whole body..." - Shame, Gendered Punishment, and the Anxieties of Corporeal Agency in _The Revenger's Tragedy_
  13. And that is how a mildly conservative, totally Catholic, and totally adorable college awarded me the most homosexual degree on the damn planet. Go Eagles!!!
