Field Formations, Field Futures: Transgender Studies and the Foundational Work of Susan Stryker

Thu, Nov 14, 4:10 to 5:25pm, Hilton Union Square, Floor: Tower 3, 4th Floor, Union Square 24

Session Submission Type: Roundtable


This roundtable brings together scholars to discuss how, in recent years, trans studies has taken shape both alongside and in tension with gender and women’s studies. We will also discuss the potentials of trans studies scholarship and activism to develop new ways of living. As a point of focus, we will reflect on Susan Stryker’s formative work in the field of trans* studies. Panelists will discuss the continued relevance of Stryker’s work, how Stryker informs the future trajectories and questions of trans* studies, and how our own scholarship continues to take shape in relation to her work.
