Transgender: Intersectional/International conference, 28-29 May 2019
A full programme for the Transgender: Intersectional/International conference has now been published on the conference website, and registration is open.
Speakers are coming from many countries across several continents, as indicated by titles in the programme. A Keynote from transgender performer Renata Carvalho will discuss experiences in Brazil under the Presidency of Jair Bolsonaro. Further speakers include: Mauro Cabral Grinspan of global trans activist organisation GATE; Arpita Phukan Biswas from the Indian Institute of Technology, India; Stephen Whittle from Manchester Metropolitan University, UK; and B Camminga (Wits University) author of Transgender Refugees and the Imagined South Africa: Bodies over Borders and Borders over Bodies. The film Call Her Ganda will be introduced by director PJ Raval, highlighting the murder of transwoman Jennifer Laude in the Philippines, in the context of the US military presence.
The conference has been conceived and led by trans researcher and activist Gina Maya Roberts, working with an organising team including members from University of Edinburgh, University of Glasgow and University of Strathclyde. We very much hope trans and gender diverse people can come together with allies at this event, to take this opportunity to participate in intersectional, transnational and critical dialogues.
The registration fee is £4 per day, which will cover lunch.
