A Book Talk with Howard Chiang

Howard Chiang
University of California, Davis

Join us to hear Dr. Chiang discuss his new monograph, Transtopia in the Sinophone Pacific.

This talk proposes a new paradigm for doing transgender history in which geopolitics assumes central importance. Defined as the antidote to transphobia, transtopia challenges a minoritarian view of transgender experience and makes room for the variability of transness on a historical continuum. A range of sources from the Chinese-speaking communities across the Pacific—in science, journalism, popular culture, and activism—will be examined to reorient anti-transphobic inquiry at the crossroads of area studies, medical humanities, and queer theory.
