Trans in College

Trans* in College by Z. Nicolazzo

Tuesdays, October 2, 9, and 16
Noon-1:00 p.m., CITL lobby

Join us this fall as we read Trans* in College by Z. Nicolazzo.

Registration is limited to 10 participants, each of whom will receive a complimentary copy of the book.

From the publisher: “This is both a personal book that offers an account of the author’s own trans* identity and a deeply engaged study of trans* collegians that reveals the complexities of trans* identities, and how these students navigate the trans* oppression present throughout society and their institutions, create community and resilience, and establish meaning and control in a world that assumes binary genders. This book is addressed as much to trans* students themselves – offering them a frame to understand the genders that mark them as different and to address the feelings brought on by the weight of that difference – as it is to faculty, student affairs professionals, and college administrators, opening up the implications for the classroom and the wider campus.”

A new Book Group is offered each semester. Watch for announcements about upcoming books and an opportunity to register.
