The Trans Lineages Symposium is a one-day event centering the trans thinkers who came before us and the trans lineages we extend through our own work, activism, and research. In this symposium we honor and turn back to those who made our work possible, focusing on the importance and necessity of honoring transgender histories, genealogies, and lineages in contemporary work in transgender studies.

Part of the 2×2 Keynote Series: New Edges in Media Studies. Organized and moderated by Media, Culture, and Communication professors Whit Pow and Nicole Fleetwood.

Registration is required. External guests must be sponsored by an NYU employee and must be in compliance with the University’s COVID-19 vaccination requirements in order to enter an NYU building or participate in an NYU-sponsored activity.
