Crip & Queer Seminar Series - Keynote lecture: In But Not Of The Academy
Welcome to this fall's Crip & Queer seminar series! This is also the keynote lecture and opening for the symposium ‘Trans, Non-binary and Intersex (in) Education’ and part of the Department of Gender Studies Crip and Queer Seminar Series.
We are very pleased and excited that Z Nicolazzo, Ph.D. Assistant Professor, Trans* Studies in Education; Co-Chair, Transgender Studies Research Cluster, University of Arizona, will join us in Lund with her talk 'In But Not Of The Academy: Exploring Invisibility as a Tactic for Trans Studies'
While trans* visibility has been taken up as the mainstream political strategy du jure, critical trans scholars(hip) has continued to highlight the limits of a politics of visibility. That is, for trans* people of color, and especially trans* women of color, increased visibility has led to increased vulnerability, threat, and violence. Thus, trans* visibility as a strategy continues to forward a white, middle-class trans*ness that is incompatible with the plurality of trans* lives. In this keynote, Nicolazzo will explore possibilities for how invisibility may be a strategy for the development of trans studies for activism, pedagogy, and daily life in schools. She will seek to pose and answer the question: how might invisibility help us resist those practices, tactics, and pedagogies that seek to assimilate and incorporate, rather than liberate?
