Why is it important?

A journal issue that focuses on recent scholarship on how language forms and is formed by transgender is a sign of times.


The discussion and the teaching of trans linguistics is both an exploratory and an activist process, one which queers its very object of study and is always ready to queer its own sometimes not queer enough queerness.
