Webinar: Panel discussion on “Trans Care” book
December 1, 2020, 4:00 pm to 5:00 pm
A panel of leading scholars on trans and queer studies will discuss the recently published book Trans Care by Hil Malatino, assistant professor of women’s, gender and sexuality studies and research associate in the Rock Ethics Institute at Penn State.
The virtual event is free and open to the public.
Published by the University of Minnesota Press, “Trans Care” rejects dominant understandings of the ethics of care and draws attention to how they help entrench family structures and other gendered arrangements that marginalize trans individuals. In the book, Malatino goes beyond just critiquing where existing theories fall short and tackles the critical work of reimagining what an ethics of care looks like in communities of trans individuals and their allies.
The Department of Women’s, Gender and Sexuality Studies and Rock Ethics Institute at Penn State are sponsoring the event. Registration is required.
