About the Author

Aren Z. Aizura is Assistant Professor of Gender, Women, and Sexuality Studies at the University of Minnesota and coeditor of The Transgender Studies Reader 2.


"Recommended. Advanced undergraduates through faculty and professionals." -- N. B. Rosenthal * Choice *
"Destabilizing formulaic transnational mobility stories that rely on an epic departure-and-return script, Aizura offers a powerful challenge to consider the wild movements of minor mobilities and the potentiality of staying in place." -- Emmanuel David * TSQ *
"[This] book evokes a pondering of how Transgender Studies as a field will move itself forward. Aizura's own urging to give a voice to transgender people who straddle the margins of privileged trans-normativity reiterates the field's mission of breaking new paths for inclusivity, intersectionality, and independence from myopic visions of what being transgender means today." -- Muriel Vernon * Medical Anthropology Quarterly *
