My Cissexist Summer

Channel 4's latest trans documentary has certainly achieved an impressive amount of commentary from within trans communities. Like it or loathe it, we all have something to say about My Transsexual Summer. I suppose that's because this particular programme - running unusually as a series rather than a one-off show - has been really pushed by the broadcaster. You can't really miss that it's happening, and as such many people are painfully aware of how likely it is to shape the general public's perception of trans lives and trans issues.

Gender, Bodies & Technology: (Dis)Integrating Frames

My paper, "Genderforking: deconstructing gender norms in a community blog", has been accepted for the second Gender Bodies and Technology conference. The conference, which is hosted by the Women’s and Gender Studies Program at Virginia Tech, will take place on 26th-28th April 2012 in Roanoke, Virginia, USA.

I'm very excited at the prospect of presenting my work in this setting! I've never attended a conference outside of the UK before, and the conference itself - an interdisciplinary exploration of the relationships(s) between gender and technology - should be fascinating, so it will certainly be an experience to remember.
