What do we gain from listening to the trans voices in our communities and theory? What do we miss out on when we don’t listen? Trans theory is still considered niche, a subdiscipline of the itself still marginal queer theory, our right to speak on our own terms conditional when granted at all. In this second part of the two-semester course, we will engage with a number of trans interventions and contributions within and across various fields. Our goal is to uncover and discuss just some of the potential and actual contributions made by trans authors and activists and to develop our own competencies in relation to trans topics within and beyond queer theory.
You are not required to have participated in the previous semester, however, this semester is not intended as a trans theory 101 course and some level of prior knowledge regarding trans topics will be expected. This prior engagement need not be academic. All texts are in English.
To participate, you can sign up directly through Agnes or, if you do not wish to sign up using your immatriculated name, email the tutor at email@example.com
