Calling all writers!
Hey all! I've had some great success posting on this forum before, so here goes:

I'm co-editor for a pretty cool forum that largely addresses matters related to gender, sex, and sexuality, and we're looking for a few new writers. We're pretty open to content/mediums, so aspiring columnists, creative writers, podcasters, videobloggers, etc. - I encourage you to check it out and see if you might be a good fit!


Current Mood: chipper!

Does anyone have access to any of these articles on their campus? I'm trying to write a comprehensive analysis debates surrounding GID and the DSM-IV and DSM-V, but my campus doesn't subscribe it this particular journal (All three articles are from the same issue of one journal). Can anyone help me out and email them to me at jromano (at) ucsc (dot) edu? I'd be super appreciative! Thank you!

Calling all writers!
Hey all!

Members from this community have shown an interest before in this, so I thought I'd drop a line once more:

I'm an editor for Below the Belt, a multi-faceted genderblog designed to provide a space for informed, critical commentary about gender, sex, sexuality, and the many other aspects of gender facing people around the world.  We're looking for new writers of various kinds, and I urge you to check out the site and see if you think it would be a good fit.

Susan Stryker's Trans History course - materials online
Susan Stryker is teaching Transgender History and Urban Spaces at Harvard this year, and her reading list, some reserve readings, the syllabus, and more online content are accessible without a student password. I thought this might be useful for those interested in the topic, or those writing papers looking for current materials.

Studies of Women, Gender, and Sexuality 1200qh: Transgender History and Urban Spaces
Fall 2008-2009
Susan Stryker

This class explores the history of transgender communities and identities in the United States. Over the course of the semester, we will link transgender history to issues in contemporary critical, queer, and feminist theory, and develop an argument about the interrelationship between embodiment and the built environment.

Protest Zucker's Invite to Speak at Royal Society of Medicine Conference
Protest Zucker's Invite to Speak at Royal Society of Medicine Conference

Please sign the petition below to protest the horrific decision to invite trans-reparatist quack Kenneth Zucker to address attendees at a conference on gender-variant youth in the UK. First he was invited to sit on the committee to oversee revisions to the GID diagnosis in the DSM, now this? When will this universally reviled doctor in the trans community stop being rewarded by the mainstream for his dangerous and egregious actions? Enough is enough!

Here is the text of the petition and a link to it:

We the undersigned wish to protest in the strongest possible terms against the inclusion of Dr Kenneth Zucker in the Royal Society of Medicine's conference on "Gender Identity Disorder in Adolescents". We believe that his methods are harmful to young people and that his theories on transgenderism are both outdated and rejected by most of the psychological community as they are based on personal bias and flawed methodology.

We respectfully ask that you replace him with a contributor to the conference who does not give such offence to the transgendered community.

queer issues/sociology PhD programs
Does anyone know any U.S. schools that have PhD programs in which professors are focusing on queer topics, particularly pertaining to gender, masculinity or transgender (FTM, specifically) issues.

I am a MA sociology student looking at doctoral programs. I have some names from articles I have read, but am still looking for a bit of feedback.

Where would you apply?

Anyone read 'Transgender rights' by Paisley Currah?
Just ordered copy from E-bay. Looks pretty good and only $18 with the shipping. The book itself was $8.95!
Anyone who read anything else about transmales in the West or across the globe, including homoeroticism, drop a line.

Hi there
Hello everyone.
I have read over the journal and noticed that a lot of people are interested in learning. Everyone seems to be so learned so I thought I'd risk a question: what is a transsexual person? Where does this term originate? What exactly makes it legitemate?
Thank you.

Hi all.  I'm a trans-academic studying... trans-academics.  I attend Elon University and am in the process of declaring a double major in anthropology and creative writing with a minor in gender studies.  Interestingly enough, Anne Bolin (In Search of Eve) is a professor here - we've met and discussed trans and gender issues - I think she'd be a perfect advisor for me, and we'd research together too.  I am currently a chem major, but I am writing and reading more on gender than I am focussing on my chem homework, so I think I've found my calling!  I presented a paper this year on transsexual rhetoric, and I'm in the process of brainstorming for and writing several new works, hopefully posting them on my blog (if anyone wants the link, I'll send it to you but there's nothing up there but an intro).  Heavily influenced by Kate Bornstein, whom I had the great pleasure of meeting and talking to last month.

Hope to talk trans with some of you folks!

(trans) Gender studies in australia
Can anyone help me out with details of reputable places in Australia to undertake gender studies?

I have been having a look at a few courses, and most of them seem to be focused on women/feminism, which is not really my thing. I'm particularly interested in masculinity and transmasculinity.

I am interested in graduate diplomas and courses that can be undertaken by correspondence, but all suggestions are welcome at this stage.

Many thanks,
