DECOLONIZING TRANSGENDER

In the current vital emergence of Transgender Studies the notion of decoloniality is strongly debated. The three-day conference will inquire historical as much as contemporary situations linked to Swedish and Scandinavian colonial projects, innernordic coloniality as much as open the debate to an international arena inquiring about the convergences between Western notions of “transsexuality” and depathologisation of trans* embodiments. Further political situations such as nationalism, mobility and border politics will also enter the discussion on the conjunctions of transgender theory as well as politics and postcolonial thought.
