TODAY: open lecture – trystan cotten

24.5. | 10:00 | HU Berlin | Open lecture: Trystan Cotten: Middle Passages: Race, Space, and Migration in the African Diaspora

In this lecture Trystan Cotten will present preliminary findings from his ethnographic study of trans-identified men in the African Diaspora and engage in intersections of gender (particularly masculinity), race, space, nationalism, movement, and migration. The attempt is to theorize transsectionalities and transgender migrations by using ethnographic data of trans-identified men in the African diaspora whose gender transitions entail a number of different (simultaneous) migrations (gender, geographical, racial, and ethnic) and border-crossings.
Part one of this paper discusses the multiple layers of this shifting reality of transmen in the African Diaspora in the United States. The transitional trajectories of Black and brown bodies transitioning from female to male are confronted with a radically different social, economic, and political reality in the United States than most white trans masculinities, as Black masculinities been stereotyped as hypersexual, violent, and incorrigible menaces to society.

See you there!!!
