Bridging contexts : A study on transmen in Hong Kong and Thailand

Activity: Talks or PresentationsOther Invited Talks or Presentations


This presentation uses an inter-Asia approach to study the movement of transmen bodies and the cultural translation of transgenderisms. Research has been primarily focused on Anglo-American societies with Southeast Asian and Native American research limited to anthropological studies (Chiang 2012). Decolonization of transgender studies have also been charged with querying knowledge production from “specificities of colonialisms” and the English language (Boellstorff et al., 2014: 421). I will examine the global circulation of transgender as an analytical category, a gender identification, an embodied experience and a theoretical concept, of which heeds caution across disciplines and international activist fronts.
