Dear all,

Here's an opportunity to
 support the efforts of our colleagues to start up a new interdisciplinary academic journal that will change the way the world thinks about transgender issues!

TSQ: Transgender Studies Quarterly will be the journal of record for the vibrant, rapidly evolving interdisciplinary field of Transgender Studies--and you can be part of its groundbreaking debut in 2014. It will be co-edited by Dr. Susan Stryker (University of Arizona) and Dr. Paisley Currah (CUNY-Brooklyn), and published by Duke University Press.


Drs. Stryker and Currah are seeking donations to subsidize the first issues of the journal. Once the journal is launched in April 2014, subscriptions will eventually cover the cost of publication. They have already raised more than half of the 100,000 USD they need. Your support will help create a first-rate platform for publishing peer-reviewed transgender-related scholarship—something that can only benefit the entire field of gender and sexuality studies.

Here’s a preview of the first five issues of TSQ:

TSQ 1:1+2, “Postposttransexual: Terms for a 21st Century Transgender Studies,” will be a special double issue of short essays on key concepts in transgender studies.

TSQ 1:3, “Decolonizing the Transgender Imaginary,” will explore cross-cultural analysis of sex/gender variation, and bring transgender studies into critical engagement with ethnography and anthropology.

TSQ 1:4, “Trans Cultural Production,” will be devoted to the arts, film, literature, and performance.

TSQ 2:1 “Making Transgender Count,” co-edited with the Williams Institute’s GenIUSS group (Gender Identity in U.S. Surveillance), will tackle such issues as population studies, demography, epidemiology, and quantitative methods.

Support at any level (from 10-3000 USD!) is welcome--please contribute what you can today!
