Trans* in College author Z Nicolazzo Talk

Dr. Z Nicolazzo will discuss her book Trans* in College with the DU Community. She is an assistant professor of Trans* Studies in Education and a Co-Chair of the Transgender Studies Research Cluster at the University of Arizona.
Below is the Stylus summary of her book:
book not only remedies the paucity of literature on trans* college
students, but does so from a perspective of resiliency and agency.
Rather than situating trans* students as problems requiring
accommodation, this book problematizes the college environment and
frames trans* students as resilient individuals capable of participating
in supportive communities and kinship networks, and of developing
strategies to promote their own success.
Z Nicolazzo provides the reader with a nuanced and illuminating review of the literature on gender and sexuality that sheds light on the multiplicity of potential expressions and outward representations of trans* identity as a prelude to the ethnography ze conducted with nine trans* collegians that richly documents their interactions with, and responses to, environments ranging from the unwittingly offensive to explicitly antagonistic.
The book concludes by giving space to the study’s participants to themselves share what they want college faculty, staff, and students to know about their lived experiences.
