With keynote speaker Julian Honkasalo, PhD, Gender Studies, Department of Cultures, University of Helsinki.
The 3-day conferences aims to connect scholars, activists and artists working on topics related to Transgender Studies within or connected to the Nordic region. Activism is the founding stone of the emerging field of Transgender Studies and is continuously an important companion to the field of Trans Studies. This conference will present papers, posters and mini-presentations along the thme of activism, resistances and alliances and create a discussion space on activist practices, academic activism and grassroot organising. The conference will feature talks on trans activism, resistance practices, methodologies, media representation, historical and popcultural archives, art, ecology, social justice movements, prison industrial system, medico-legal issues, elderly care, ally activism, as well as affective and ontological approaches to trans research. We hope to create a specific discussion on activism, as well as a broader platform for the diversity of knowledge production in Trans Studies.
