Trans Healthcare Politics: The Affective Motility of the Flesh
MetadataShow full item record
There has not been much work on the connections of Trans Theory to healthcare politics. In navigating trans healthcare politics and theory I have encountered three main groupings of theoretical approaches: Judith Butler and Michel Foucault’s theories of power, psychoanalysis, and phenomenology. This thesis articulates why new work on transition related care is necessary and begins to parse some basic aspects of the work that needs to be done between Trans Theory and biomedical ethics and suggest how such steps may and may not be taken.
