Dylan Goodman (class of 2016) calls Raleigh, North Carolina his home. Though he is currently undecided about his major, he is passionate about theatre, social change, international affairs, literature, history, and sex—academically speaking, of course. This past summer he interned at Playmakers Repertory Company, assisting with a youth production of Sweeney Todd. He would like to dedicate this publication to his family and to the historical agency of storytelling. Dylan’s essay was written for Dr. Tilburg’s History 228: The Making of the Modern Body; Gender, Sex, and Politics in France.
