TRANSCITY – International Workshop
6 October - 8 October
Call for Participants TransCity: International Workshop
This is an invitation to an intensive, intimate three-day workshop to share radical trans possibilities, coalitions, and joy. This is an invitational gesture to transfeminist theorists, creative writers, artists, and activist-scholars who find themselves—time and again—not fitting within hegemonic institutions, grand narratives about our lives, and preconceived aesthetics of trans identities. This workshop is a meeting space for activist-scholars who interpret ‘trans’ as a radically open category in which we could collectively breathe; who seek to articulate and practise a coalitional, internationalist transfeminist politics through which to resist and struggle against fascist anti-gender agendas and authoritarian, neoliberal capitalism. We envision this workshop as a space in which we can breathe together, learn from each other, and nurture abolition, social transformation, and radical hope.
