Thursday 26th – Friday 27th June 2014
Radcliffe, University of Warwick
This concluding seminar will consider the epistemic, intersubjective and affective implications of ‘trans’ culture, discourse and practice.
It will ask whether, to what degree and in what terms does the emergence of ‘trans’ challenge conceptual norms across different cultural sites from professional to popular to everyday practice.
What challenges do the epistemic underpinnings of ‘trans’ herald for sexuality and gender studies? Does ‘trans’ represent a ‘post-closet’ epistemology? Does it represent an emergent meta-narrative and, in its wake, a transformed ‘post Kinsey’ understanding of gender, sexuality, bodies and experience?
