Transgender Policing & Pushing The Boundaries 1850s To 2010s, Robert Tacker Nov 2017

Transgender Policing & Pushing The Boundaries 1850s To 2010s, Robert Tacker

Gender & Sexuality Studies Student Work Collection

The notions of gender transgression and gender policing served as the basis for this presentation. Looking at the historical representations in media, major stories in the social awareness of transgender people, and transfeminist politics of the modern era allowed a freedom to look at the roots of trans-misogyny from multiple lenses. I wanted to humanize transgender people and simultaneously address a major question of the day. Namely do trans people have the right to exist in public spaces? This led to several related questions to help frame the issue on a historical and sociological basis and allow a synthesis of ...

Mybarrio: Emigdio Vasquez And Chicana/O Identity In Orange County, Natalie Lawler, Denise Johnson, Marcus Herse, Jessica Bocinski, Manon Wogahn

We hope to initiate discourse not only about Vasquez’s prolific career, but also about ...

Terminal Insecurity: Passenger Screening's Historical Journey Toward Landing Legitimacy, Hillel Neumark Apr 2015

Terminal Insecurity: Passenger Screening's Historical Journey Toward Landing Legitimacy, Hillel Neumark

Posters

Created for History & Sociology of Science (HSOC) Senior Honors Thesis, overseen by Dr. Ann Greene

Advisor: Dr. John Tresch

In this paper, I contend that screening's perceived instability is a direct consequence of its inability to achieve Legitimation, expound upon the various programs and strategies that have been--and are currently being--employed in attempts to establish the discipline's legitimacy, and demonstrate the need to divert from such continually futile approaches. Next, I contend that overcoming the stage of Legitimation and thus achieving the realm's stability is a practicable goal whose attainment depends on policymakers' reevaluation of the premises ...
