Visualizing the Past, Present, and Future of Trans* Lives
April 5-6, 2013
University of New Hampshire
Transecting Society is a two-day symposium dedicated to exploring controversial political topics related to trans* lives in contemporary U.S. society. Although we recognize that the word “trans*,” like all words, is limited in its capacity to name our differences, we intend for the phrase “trans* lives” to be inclusive of the lives of all transsexuals, cross-dressers, genderqueers, and other gender-nonconforming people. In this symposium, we endeavor to cultivate a supportive and egalitarian space in which to encourage and educate each other. We welcome artists, performers, writers, activists, lawyers, social workers, policy workers, non-profit workers, undergraduate students, graduate students, faculty, independent scholars, and all others who are interested in rendering visible the oppression and agency of trans* people and in envisioning the advancement of our civil rights, human rights, and collective liberation.
