POSTPONED: Transgender/Transnational: Mapping Transgender Subjectivity Across National and Institutional Boundaries



Transgender/Transnational: Mapping Transgender Subjectivity Across National and Institutional Boundaries

The second installment of this year’s Globally Queer? series — a talk with Tey Meadow & Afsaneh Najmabadi

THIS PANEL DISCUSSION HAS BEEN POSTPONED.  WE HOPE TO RESCHEDULE FOR THE SPRING 2014 SEMESTER.  MORE INFORMATION TO FOLLOW.  WE APOLOGIZE FOR THE INCONVENIENCE.

Tey Meadow, Sociology, Princeton University

Afsaneh Najmabadi, History, Harvard University

On the eve of the publication of Afsaneh Najmabadi’s new book, Professing Selves: Transsexuality and Same-Sex Desire in Contemporary Iran, this panel puts Najmabadi into interdisciplinary conversation with Tey Meadow.  Together, Meadow and Najmabadi will discuss the different strategies adopted by gender nonconforming  subjects in their negotiations of cultural, medical, religious, and state-bureaucratic scripts for “being” a legible subject of gender.  Along the way, Meadow and Najmabadi will also consider the challenges of doing cross-cultural studies of transgender and the limits of categories.

Co-sponsored by the NYU Center for the Study of Gender & Sexuality, and Department of Social and Cultural Analysis.


This event is free and open to the public.  Venue is wheelchair accessible.

For more information, please contact CSGS at csgs(at)nyu.edu or 212-992-9540.
