"Transgender/Transplant: historical and contemporary entanglements in medicine"
This talk examines the role that transplantation medicine has played in the creation of transsexual and transgender bodies. The technical possibility of transforming subjectivities by moving working parts within one body or between many bodies opened boundaries of the self. From the early gonad transplants between humans and animals that formed the basis of modern endocrinology to contemporary efforts to transplant uteruses and penises into the bodies of trans- people who desire them, this talk considers entanglements between these fields of medicine and what expansions of transplant capacity may mean to for trans- futures.
