Unfortunately Tobias Raun and Surya Monro can no longer attend our final event, After Kinsey.
However, we’re pleased to announce that we will now be joined by Greygory Vass of Open Barbers. We will also be screening Jai Arun Ravine’s experimental short film Trans/Tom/Thai on the Thursday evening.
More information, including links to abstracts and speaker biographies, can be found here.
Alex Drummond will be filming the event for us, meaning that videos of some of the talks will be available at a future date.
This event will return to the themes of medical and therapeutic practice, popular culture and representation explored in previous seminars, whilst also reflecting specifically upon the consequences of contemporary ‘trans’ discourses for the theorising of gender and sexuality.
The event will be highly interactive, with several opportunities for extensive discussion of themes and issues raised by the speakers.
Registration will take place from 12pm on Thursday 26th June, with the event proper beginning at 1pm. Lunch, an evening meal and accommodation will be provided at Radcliffe. Breakfast will be provided on Friday 27th June.
The livestream of tomorrow’s seminar will be going ahead. We’ll be announcing the url on this blog and on Twitter as the seminar starts just after 9am (GMT+1) Thursday morning. We’ll be broadcasting through Bambuser.
We now have a variety of resources from the first seminar in the series – Trans Genealogies – available on the site. These include videos, abstracts, speaker biographies, powerpoint slides and links. Summaries of the group discussions should also follow soon.
There is also Trans Genealogiesplaylist on YouTube, with a variety of videos from the day. Alex Drummond has kindly donated her editing skills, meaning that powerpoint slides and other media are incorporated into most of these videos.
We’d like to thank all of the speakers for allowing us to use resources and/or video footage related to their work.
We wish to thank everyone who came to the Trans Genealogies seminar. The day was very successful, with some really productive conversation.
In the coming weeks we’ll be updating this site with videos, slides, discussion points and other resources from the launch event. We’ll also be announcing details of our next seminar: ‘Trans’ as Everyday Culture: social networks, social movements, everyday lives and everyday repertoires. Watch this space for more news!
