a forum with Tey Meadow & Afsaneh Najmabadi
Thursday, September 25
6:30 to 8 pm
Tey Meadow, Sociology and Studies of Women, Gender & Sexuality, Harvard University
Afsaneh Najmabadi, History and Studies of Women, Gender & Sexuality, Harvard University
In this interdisciplinary conversation, Tey Meadow and Afsaneh Najmabadi will discuss the different strategies adopted by gender nonconforming subjects in their negotiations of cultural, medical, religious, and state-bureaucratic scripts for “being” a legible subject of gender. Along the way, Meadow and Najmabadi will also consider the challenges of doing cross-cultural studies of transgender and the limits of identity categories.
