The Trans Allegory and International Studies: A Conversation with Professor Emma Heaney

The Trans Allegory and International Studies: A Conversation with Professor Emma Heaney

How has the figure of the trans feminine shaped contemporary scholarship in the field of mobility, migration, and transnational politics? In recent years, numerous scholars have turned to trans theory as a source of inspiration to rethink foundational assumptions, concepts, and narratives within international studies. This new trend raises critical questions about the purpose, methods, ethics, and political implications of knowledge production that draws on the lives of transgender people. To discuss the treatment of transgender people within international studies, Leverhulme Trust Doctoral Scholars Alexander Stoffel and Ida Birkvad are joined by Emma Heaney, Assistant Professor in the Department of English at William Paterson University.
