We are happy to announce here the finalized program and websites for the upcoming Thinking Trans//Trans Thinking Conference taking place on Oct. 5-6, 2018 at American University in Washington, D.C.

Over the past two decades, with the publication of The Transgender Studies Reader 1 and 2 (2006; 2013) and TSQ:  Transgender  Studies Quarterly,  transgender  studies has quickly  become a prominent interdisciplinary  field. While disciplines such as history, literature, and visual arts have made significant contributions to this emerging field, philosophy has yet to clarify its role within transgender studies. The aim of this conference will be  to continue to explore what might be called “trans philosophy” – that is, philosophical work that is accountable to and illuminative of transgender experiences, histories, cultural production, and politics.
