Description

Transsexual, transvestite, transnational, transgender, transformative...trans. This flexible, revolutionary term implies space between the either/or and in this provocative collection, pioneers in the field of transgender studies explore how the concept of 'trans' has drawn attention to the porous areas between definitions: between young and old, the real and the imaginary, and especially man and woman. The field of transgender studies, just like the movement for transgender rights, has the ability to shed new light on feminism by forging new paths to the liberation of the individual from gendered expectations.
