Trans* in College: Transgender Students’ Strategies for Navigating Campus Life and the Institutional Politics of Inclusion

By Z Nicolazzo, 2016

“With recent estimates of the trans* population in the United States showing three to six times as many trans* people under the age of 18 as there are over the age of 18, the work Z Nicolazzo undertakes in this book should be required reading for educators at every level of instruction. Gender is changing in ways we can scarcely comprehend, and millions of students already live lives that break the gender binary and contest what Nicolazzo calls ‘compulsory heterogenderism.’ We owe it to those students to acknowledge their reality, and reflect it in our pedagogy, curriculum, and institutional practices.”–Susan Stryker, Associate Professor of Gender and Women’s Studies, University of Arizona, and founding co-editor of TSQ: Transgender Studies Quarterly
