This initiative includes a funded series on Transgender Studies + Humanities, pedagogical efforts, and a post-doctoral fellowship program.
The Transgender Studies & Humanities project is a series of events that asks:
- How does transgender studies reshape the structuring assumptions of humanistic inquiry?
- What are the potential contributions of critical transgender studies—meaning, in general terms, of a humanities approach to trans* existence—outside of the academy, such as to healthcare or advocacy?
Funded by the Humanities Futures Initiative at the Franklin Humanities Institute. Project Directors: Ara Wilson & Gabriel Rosenberg (on leave 2016-17).
