Transgender Studies Quarterly (TSQ) (University of Arizona Institute for LGBT Studies) invites submissions for a special issue on the theme “Making Transgender Count.” The submission deadline (for full articles) is January 31, 2014.
As a relatively new social category, the very notion of a transgender population poses numerous intellectual, political, and technical challenges. Who gets to define what transgender is, or who is transgender? How are trans people countedand by whom and for whom are they enumerated? Why is counting transgender members of a population seen as making that populations government accountable to those individuals? What is at stake in making transgender countand how might this process vary in different national, linguistic, or cultural contexts?
