Abstract

This special-issue on ‘Trans Temporalities’ grew out of a dynamic conference by the same name at the University of Toronto, Canada, in April, 2016. Organized by Ido Katri, Simon Fisher and our colleague Celeste Pang, the conference featured scholarship from graduate students, community artist-activists, lay scholars, and faculty addressing the unique relationships between time, narrative, discourse and bodies. Defining these concepts as interrelated enables us to better understand trans temporalities and the widely and forcefully held linear conceptions of ‘progress’ and ‘development’ that constrain them. The conference was successful beyond our aspirations, drawing participants and audience members not only from Toronto, but from across Canada and the United States. We are grateful that the editors of Somatechnics, Sheila L. Cavanagh and Malena Gustavson, for inviting us to further develop these important and exciting conversations herein print.

Keywords: Transgender Studies, Temporality, Transfeminism, Subalternity
