Over the past two decades, transgender studies has become fertile ground for new approaches to cultural analysis. TSQ: Transgender Studies Quarterly offers a high-profile venue for innovative research and scholarship that contest the objectification, pathologization, and exoticization of transgender lives. It will publish interdisciplinary work that explores the diversity of gender, sex, sexuality, embodiment, and identity in ways that have not been adequately addressed by feminist and queer scholarship. Its mission is to foster a vigorous conversation among scholars, artists, activists, and others that examines how “transgender” comes into play as a category, a process, a social assemblage, an increasingly intelligible gender identity, an identifiable threat to gender normativity, and a rubric for understanding the variability and contingency of gender across time, space, and cultures. Major topics addressed in the first few issues will include the cultural production of trans communities, critical analysis of transgender population studies, transgender biopolitics, radical critiques of political economy, and problems of translating gender concepts and practices across linguistic communities.
"The arrival of TSQ on the intellectual scene is welcome indeed. This journal will represent a key site of transgender studies, bringing together a range of disciplines, methodologies, and topical foci as they speak to questions of transgender theory, experience, and politics. In turn, the innovative work fostered and shared through TSQ will provide powerful resources and insights for a vast array of issues in the humanities, social sciences, and beyond." — Tom Boellstorff, Professor of Anthropology at University of California at Irvine
