“The Signal Never Dies: Transgender and Digital Communities," with Dr. Gabrielle M. W. Bychowski

On Wednesday, November 29, 2017, Gabrielle M. W. Bychowski, Anisfield-Wolf SAGES Fellow and Lecturer at Case Western Reserve University will present “The Signal Never Dies: Transgender and Digital Communities.” This lecture is co-sponsored by JHU’s LGTBQ Life, Dr Bychowski will explore how the relative lack of physical "trans spaces" (bars, neighborhoods, etc.) has created a vacuum wherein the internet has become such a space where most trans people (especially youths) engage in community for the first time; she will also consider how it often falls to digital realms to mourn the dead and transform their memory into activism. The seminar will take place at 5pm in BLC 4040.
