Afsaneh Najmabadi, History and Studies of Women, Gender & Sexuality, Harvard University

In this interdisciplinary conversation, Tey Meadow and Afsaneh 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 identity categories.
