Zayde Antrim is a historian of gender, sexuality, and space in the Middle East and editor of Al-'Usur al-Wusta: The Journal of Middle East Medievalists. Her current book project is on embodiment and eroticism in medieval Arabic literature. Her previous books have explored geographical imaginations as expressed in both word and image between the ninth century and today. All of her work centers the close reading of texts and draws heavily from the fields of literary criticism and critical geography.

At Trinity, Professor Antrim holds a joint appointment in the History Department and International Studies Program, as well as a courtesy appointment in the Women, Gender, and Sexuality Program. She enjoys the creative thinking that teaching across three departments and programs makes possible and the diversity of students who take her courses.
