P. Carl, Emerson’s Artist-in-Residence, previewed his upcoming book that chronicles his life and transition to becoming male with a selection from the work in the New York Times. He is the founder of the online journal HowlRound, and the former co-artistic director of ArtsEmerson. As distinguished artist-in-residence, he served as dramaturg for Claudia Rankine’s The White Card, which premiered at the Paramount in February 2018, and was co-produced and directed by the American Repertory Theater (ART). Becoming a Man: The Story of a Transition, will be published on January 28 by Simon & Schuster.
Carl also published an essay in Boston Globe Magazine on his perspective driving a car as a male after his transition and what he discovered.
