The 8th Nordic Trans Studies Conference will be held at Tampere University on February 23-25, 2023, with the theme “From Transgender Rage to Trans Joy: Trans Studies through Affective Lens.”

Over the past three decades, trans related topics have evoked strong affects and feelings within and beyond trans communities, research and activism. The conference focuses on feelings and affective responses arising from, and guiding, the actions of trans scholars, activists and artists working on knowledge production and political struggles concerning trans lives and rights. The conference deals with issues relevant to the Intersectionality in Research Network, and you can find more information on the conference website:
