Current research project:

Trans Futures: Theorizing Community Building as Resistance to Biopolitics (Academy of Finland 2019-2021)

A key point of examination of my current research project is the question of how shared representations of struggle shape the ways in which future and community are conceptualized. The project theorizes transgender resistance and agency in the plural, as multiple practices that are context-dependent, local and challenge predominant, pathologizing regimes of truth. The project complicates the simplistic logic of community as based either on identity-politics and recognition or subversive anti-futurity. A characteristic of trans community-building is care and memory preservation as a means of resisting state-legitimated and socially sanctioned forms of oppression and violence. The research project utilizes archival material in the US and the Nordic Countries.

 

Description of my earlier postdoc research project:

Unfit for Citizenship: Eugenics and the Pathologization of Gender Nonconformity (Kone Foundation 2016-2019) advances and reconstructs earlier scholarly literature on 20th century eugenic discourses by examining the phenomenon of gender reassignment -related sterilization legislation in Scandinavian countries from a queer-theoretical and historical perspective. The research project aims to understand and answer the following questions: 1) how do certain forms of embodiment and gender expression come to be viewed as legitimately subjected to state-sanctioned sterilization? 2) What do various moral, psychiatric and political techniques around gender non-conforming embodiment and subjectivity reveal about a society, the nation-state, and notions of citizenship?

I am interested in biopolitics, social and political constructions of the fit and able-bodied citizen, dynamics of racialization as well as feminist disability studies, transgender reproductive justice, self-determination and theorization of resistance. My research approach and interests are multidisciplinary and stem from personal interests in human rights activism.
