730: Trans* Actions

1:45 PM–3:00 PM Sunday, Jan 6, 2019 (US - Central)

Hyatt Regency - Grand Suite 3

Session Information

Description: This roundtable draws inspiration from the presidential theme, Textual Transactions, while forcing the pun as a provocation. Panelists present a diversity of positions, ideas, and objects, trans*acting with genres, modes of textuality, and materiality. Presenters find different pathways for various “trans*actions”—negotiating varied theories, archives, and practices that draw on trans* embodiment, racialized gender spectrums, and the human sensorium.
