Abstract: In this paper, I analyze the effects of mapping dead trans* bodies for the purposes of "improving the situation of trans* people worldwide." The Trans Murder Monitoring (TMM) project, collects information about trans* homicides around the world. One form that their reporting takes is an online interactive world map that confirms the existence of trans* people across the globe by showing the viewer where trans* people have died. I delve into the colonial cartographies of TMM and argue that the map engages in ghost making; namely, the map conjures the dead in order to make claims for the living.

Abstract: Drawing on Halberstam’s (1998) notion of queer methods, Merten’s (2008) transformative paradigm, and the modes of analysis used to understand the experiences of 39 trans* academics, I propose a trans*forming methodology. As such, I develop modes of analysis that leverage the politics of evidence in productive ways. In combining different analytic approaches, I elucidate the tensions and contradictions inherent in critical qualitative research. By working with data reduction strategies like thematic analysis and approaches that refute the utility of such strategies (e.g., thinking with theory), I developed a trans*formative methodology that centers the lived experiences of trans* academics and drew out the thresholds where trans* identities catch, create snags, or caught in the press of the normative. Thus, my central argument is that foraging for seemingly contradictory methods can allow researchers to critically and collaboratively produce knowledge while navigating the difficult neoliberal terrain.

Abstract: The World Social Forum emerged as a space for the meeting and networking of ideas and activists opposed to market-driven globalization. Though united and driven by an anti-market ideology, the Forum has consciously promoted itself as a space for diverse movements, actors and opinions. Its attempts to promote inclusiveness have led to a migration of its annual, international meetings from its roots in Porto Alegre, Brazil to the Asian and African continents. The spirit of inclusiveness has also promoted dialogue within the Forum about the tension between its roles as a) only a space for existing organizations and movements, and b) a potential supra-institutional actor. This paper examines the cultural nature of the processes through which the World Social Forum created and maintains its loose identity. It examines the Forum’s own attempts to frame its image and its position in the globalization/anti-globalization discourse. It also compares the Forum’s desire to be truly global and inclusive of all opinions against market-driven globalization, i.e. to be a transcultural space, with the organizational and institutional pressures it faces, externally and internally, to become a more forceful actor in the international system, i.e. to be, in a sense, a trans-organizational advocacy network.

Abstract: General Abstract: Performing stories of trans-lation (narratives of passage of/about trans/sexual/transgender folks) based on contemporary drama films, panelists present, problematized and play with the transnational representation of trans-realities. While the multi-media performance centers trans identity performances, negotiations and transformations, theorizing from feminist, queer and postmodern perspectives offers transdisciplinary analyses and critiques, and the possibility for transversal political alliances. Ethical and aesthetic issues of representation and the performance/embodiment of the “other” are addressed and problematized in the performances and discussion.

Abstract: This paper examines the transnational political economy underpinning the constitution of healthcare regimes aiming to address gender variance and targeting transgender people. In the history of ‘transsexual healthcare’ the relationship between medical knowledge and financial profit was never linear. Since medical technologies, such as feminizing and masculinizing hormonal therapies and surgeries, became available and medical protocols were established (in some countries already in the 1950s), accessing gender transition has been facilitated, namely to those fitting the diagnostic criteria of “transsexualism” and “gender identity disorder” (substituted by “gender dysphoria” in DSM V). Simultaneous, however, treatments were made costlier. Two fundamental reasons have been found to underpin the inequalities in the access to trans healthcare. Firstly, the rigid psychiatric categories for understanding gender variance contributed to exclude some individuals. Depathotologization and the right to gender self-determination have therefore been central for LGBTQ+ and trans activism as a trans politics for the affirmation of gender identities gained momentum. Secondly, the historical decline of the welfare state made medical procedures increasingly inaccessible for lack of coverage by national health systems or insurances. Consequently, and along class lines, opportunities for expanding a global market of privatized trans medical-care filled the gap, reproducing inequality at the expenses of a political economy for social and gender justice. Drawing on qualitative fieldwork with trans people and healthcare professionals in Portugal and the United Kingdom, we argue that the commodification of health at the global level impacted protocols and standards of care leading to the commodification of trans bodies.
