Make/ing room for living: Organizational strategies in transgender activism

The aim of the project is to explore different strategies taken when organizing trans activist work and how these relate to and reformulate feminist organizational strategies. The study will be undertaken in three different national, and intra-national, contexts – Pakistan, U.S., and Europe – exploring different ways of organizing transgender lobbyism and activism. The three empirical cases studies have been chosen with consideration of diversity in the size, location and strategies of the organizations, for the sake of comparison but also to ensure that the material has the chance of talking back. The diversity of the material will also ensure the theoretical development, for example making it possible to examine and reconsider Northern feminism’s critique of the rhetorics of universal human rights as based on the problematic concept of the humanist subject.

The material for the study will consist of both textual documentation – organizational documentation, grey paper, and policy documents – and of interviews with members of the organizations. The method will be a combination of discourse analysis of texts and of ethnography.
