Anthropocene Transitions


The body-image in transgender activism: kalki subramaniam and the trans-image.
My paper investigates how the internet has enabled trans-media, transgender activist Kalki Subramaniam to conduct self-imaging practices that challenge the stability of categories gender normativity presupposes. It considers the trade-offs made as her body-image became a site of political "assemblage", at once vulnerable to abuse and open to care.
