Title: “Transgender Experience in the U.S.: Embodied Stigma, Stress, and Biologies of Resilience”
Zachary Dubois (University of Oregon)
Abstract: Although trans, gender diverse and gender non-binary people are increasingly visible in popular culture in the U.S., political backlash and entrenchment in a gender binary continue to contribute to enacted stigma and violence. This talk examines trans experience through a biocultural lens focusing on how stress and stigma become embodied and explores ways to understand trans lives and “biologies of resilience.”
This event is a part of the fall lineup for the Biological Anthropology Brown Beer series.
