This round table will feature the disGnguished Cuban historian Julio César González discussing his most recent book, Por andar ves+da de hombre, which chronicles the life of Swiss physician Enriqueta Favez, who pracGced medicine during the early nineteenth century in the Napoleonic Wars and in Cuba. Considered female at birth, Favez self-‐idenGﬁed and lived as a man, and was among the earliest documented transsexuals. Inspired by the life and works of Favez, this round table will consider the changing signiﬁcance and status of gender in contemporary Cuba and LaGn America.
