SPRING 2024: TRANS CULTURAL PRODUCTION

FREE AND OPEN TO THE PUBLIC

Organized by Jo Giardini in collaboration with Siân Evans and Joseph Plaster

Co-sponsored by the Alexander Grass Humanities Institute

The Winston Tabb Special Collections Research Center’s Spring 2024 speaker series highlights cultural production by trans, non-binary, and gender-nonconforming artists, writers, historians, poets, and musicians. Drawing on Special Collections materials and supporting collections development, it explores the aesthetic possibilities of artworks and literature, and their relationship to questions of community formation, selfhood, becoming, and the dialectic of history and futurity. Conversations with visiting artists and scholars will include discussions of institutional development, curation, and access, and will aim to engage wide audiences.
