Transgender Studies Quarterly (TSQ): The Europa Issue

Critical Trans Studies in and beyond Europe: Histories, Methods, and Institutions

This special issue interrogates the institutionalization of transgender studies at a time in which European citizens and newcomers are faced with a resurgence of fascisms. How is trans studies and theory vested with Eurocentric privilege, and how is it contested by various racialized, ethnicized, colonized and diasporic communities from outside and within Europe? What are the different terms/ways by which we should evaluate "trans studies" in the European context, where both pathologizing and depathologizing activity occurs? What narratives and case studies challenge the assumption that the 'center' of Europe initiates progressive historical change, which the 'margins' of Europe would follow? What kinds of hegemonies operate in European gender, sexuality and race studies that impact the ways interdisciplinary transgender studies has developed? This issue pays special attention to Post-Soviet and post-socialist nationalisms, the formation of the European Union and its funding schemes, to different mobilities and patterns of migration, and to language use within Nation-States and between them.
