Call for Papers: Trans*historicities

Transgender Studies Quarterly invites submissions for its upcoming issue, Trans*historicities.

This issue of TSQ explores gender crossings that precede the terms “transgender” and “transsexual.” Drawing on Susan Stryker and Aren Aizura’s formulation of trans-historicity, we propose a theoretical and methodological imagining of what constitutes trans* before the advent of the terms that scholars generally look to for the formation of modern conceptions of gender, sex, and sexuality. What might we find if we look for trans* before trans*?
