Speaker: Howard Chiang, UC Davis
Transtopia calls into question the coherence of transness and seeks to enable a non-hierarchical continuum of transgender subjects and experiences. This talk explores three examples of transtopia in the history of the Sinophone Pacific: the history of renyao (the “human prodigy”), the cinematic representations of Chinese castration, and the changing nature of tongzhi (LGBTQ) activism in post-millennial Taiwan.
This event is co-sponsored by the East Asia Program, the Feminist, Gender, and Sexuality Studies Department, and Society for the Humanities.
Faculty hosts: Andrea Bachner, Masha Raskolnikov
