Debates in Transgender, Queer, and Feminist Theory (Queer by Patricia Elliot

By Patricia Elliot

Transgender experiences is a heterogeneous web site of discussion that's marked by means of tensions, border wars, and rifts either in the box and between feminist and queer theorists. Intersecting the domain names of women's reports, sexuality, gender and transgender reports, "Debates in Transgender, Queer, and Feminist thought" offers a severe research of key texts and theories, conducting a discussion with well-known theorists of transgendered id, embodiment and sexual politics, and intervening in a variety of elements of a conceptually and politically tricky terrain. A principal main issue is the query of no matter if the theories and practices had to foster and safe the lives of transsexuals and transgendered folks can be promoted or undermined - a priority that increases broader social, political, and moral questions surrounding assumptions approximately gender, sexuality, and sexual distinction; perceptions of transgendered embodiments and identities; and conceptions of divergent wants, objectives and visions.
