Trans rights topic for teach-in

The Interdisciplinary and Critical Studies Department’s third teach-in event on the theme “Learning (to) Hate Violence” is on Monday, Nov. 20.

“Trans Day of Remembrance: the Battle Lines of Gender, and the Violence of the Status Quo” features several experts on the subject:

  • “Trans Identities and the Neo-Colonial Construction of the Trans Controversy,” Richard Douglass-Chin
  • “The Politics of the ‘Them’,” Jennifer Meyer

This session takes place in the SoCA Armouries Performance Hall and runs from 7 to 9 p.m., in person and on MS-Teams. This talk has been organized in response to recent incidences of hate violence that have affected our campus community, and will shed light on the reality of gendered violence in our lives and community.
