What is Feminist Research: Tristan Josephson

June 21, 2018

Tristan Josephson discusses feminism, Trans Studies, and Trans/feminism.  Josephson brings a social justice perspective to researching how the state classifies transgender immigrants in asylum law, marriage, citizenship, and immigrant detention.  By taking a social justice approach to academic research, trans/feminist scholars provide helpful frameworks for thinking about how to challenge state violence and marginalization on the basis of gender, sexuality, race, and immigration status.

What is Feminist Research: Quimera Rosa

June 21, 2018

Quimera Rosa’s approach to feminist research emphasizes a transversality and embodiment that challenge fixed notions of identity, scientific objectivity, and epistemic universality.  They use art as a medium with which to build collaborative relations between feminist arts and science.  Locating a foundational dualism of Western thinking in the constructed boundary between nature and culture, Quimera Rosa works to deconstruct this normative dualism through the notion of the cyborg.
