I'll be speaking at the Centre for the Study of Women and Gender graduate seminar Constructing Gendered Identities next week.
Myself and Kirsty Lohman will present a paper entitled Trans Music Isn't, discussing the findings of a research project we conducted in the summer of 2012. This study explored the intersection of 'trans' identities, musicians' identities and performance events.

A somewhat belated post here I'm afraid! The first event was definitely a success, with some great feedback on an early draft of my "Genderforking" conference paper. There was also a fantastic last-minute contribution from Mark Carrigan, who postulated a connection between the "sexual revolution" and the emergence of a particular "asexual" identity in the early years of the 21st century.
The next two events promise to be equally interesting, with multi-disciplinary contributions from across the arts, humanities and social sciences.
