A Transfeminist Media Archaeology of Radical Feminism’s Futures

Sun, Nov 16, 9:15 to 10:30am, PRCC, 202-C (LCD)


Transfeminism, the need to think trans* issues and feminism together, is a pressing concern. Debates have broken out on Twitter and feminist blogs about who feminism ought to serve as well as how cisgender feminists might be better trans* allies. While Cathy Brennan and Sheila Jeffreys consider themselves to be carrying on radical feminism, this paper argues otherwise. In order to do so, it offers a transfeminist media archaeology of science fiction in the 1970s that shows radical feminism to be in pursuit of the possibility of living a gendered life differently.
