Trans* Bodies at the Limits of Intelligibility

Thursday, September 24, 2015 at 5:00 p.m.
Seelye Hall 201

Under what conditions do transgender bodies become intelligible? Bodies that have undergone some kind of medical intervention (surgeries, etc.) become publicly disclosed as trans bodies, while trans bodies that have not undergone medical treatments are not considered intelligible trans* bodies. Kat Zubko seeks to elucidate this problematic subjectivation through medical procedure, which is often the only way that transgender bodies become intelligible in our current U.S. context

Open to the public.
