Event description

Description

The inaugural Trans Literacy Project workshop brings together Heath Fogg Davis (Temple Political Science), Jessa Lingel (Penn Annenberg), and Melissa Sanchez (Penn English) to address dialogues and dissonances between feminist, queer and trans theory. In this workshop, graduate students and faculty will learn strategies for designing syllabi that use texts from all three subfields to frame conversations about gender and sexuality across disciplines. Questions will include: how can trans literacy most effectively be a part of the feminist studies and queer studies classroom? How can texts from trans theory be incorporated into both cross-disciplinary and discipline-specific syllabi? What different approaches are there to sequencing and combining texts from feminist, queer and trans studies in the arc of a semester? What are some gender-inclusive approaches to teaching canonical, cis-normative texts from feminist and queer studies? This workshop will open with comments from each panelist, and leave lots of time for questions and discussion. Feel free to bring any questions you have, or to ask questions that occur during the event!

The Trans Literacy Project is sponsored by an Alice Paul Center Working Group Grant.

Additional support is provided by Penn English, School of Social Policy and Practice and the Graduate School of Education
