Transgender Gesture & Racialized Performance

Thursday, December 1, 2016 - 5:30pm

This talk will explore the case of Latisha King, a gender-transgressive 15-year-old who was shot and killed in an Oxnard, California junior high school by a 14-year-old classmate in 2008. Salamon will offer a phenomenological reading of the school and the courtroom to explore the paradoxical nature of gender and race in this legal case, in which gender was simultaneously treated as a material object and understood as the effect of immaterial bodily gesture.
