A few months ago I was delighted and privileged to be asked to contribute a book review to a special issue of the Graduate Journal of Social Science, the theme of which is “Transgender Studies and Theories: Building up the Field in a Nordic Context”. My small contribution looks at a recent book called Transgender Identities: Towards a Social Analysis of Gender. I am thrilled to be included.
I’m very interested in the relationship between academic considerations of gender and the emerging new identities and thinking which is coming from trans people ourselves (as my review touches on). I look forward to reading the whole issue, which looks fascinating. The GJSS is an open-access online journal, so you can find this issue here.
In my next post I will conclude my deliberations on ‘voice’.
