Gender Matters: Making The Case For Trans Inclusion, Nancy K. Knauer Dec 2006

Gender Matters: Making The Case For Trans Inclusion, Nancy K. Knauer

The University of New Hampshire Law Review

[Excerpt] “The transgender communities are producing an important and nuanced critique of our gender system. For community members, the project is self-constitutive and, therefore, has an immediacy that also marks the efforts of other marginalized groups who have attempted to make sense of the world through description, interrogation, and ultimately a program for transformation. The transgender project also has universalizing elements because, existing within the gender system, each one of us embodies a particular gender articulation. It is through this articulation that we define ourselves in relation to the gender we were assigned at birth, the gender we choose, the ...


Protecting Parent-Child Relationships: Determining Parental Rights Of Same-Sex Parents Consistently Despite Varying Recognition Of Their Relationship, Linda S. Anderson Dec 2006

Protecting Parent-Child Relationships: Determining Parental Rights Of Same-Sex Parents Consistently Despite Varying Recognition Of Their Relationship, Linda S. Anderson

The University of New Hampshire Law Review

[Excerpt] “The family and parental relationship appears secure as long as the members of the family stay within the borders of the states that recognize their relationship. What happens, though, when the family ventures beyond the borders of Vermont, Massachusetts, California, and Connecticut, has yet to be determined. Legislation in almost every other state has addressed whether each state will recognize the couples’ relationship,27 but no state has determined how it will treat the legal relationship between the children of these couples and their parents.28 This article will focus on the fragile legal relationship between same-sex parents and ...

“A Highly Ambiguous Condition”: The Transgender Subject, Experimental Narrative And Trans-Reading Identity In The Fiction Of Virginia Woolf, Angela Carter, And Jeanette Winterson, Jennifer A. Smith Jul 2006

“A Highly Ambiguous Condition”: The Transgender Subject, Experimental Narrative And Trans-Reading Identity In The Fiction Of Virginia Woolf, Angela Carter, And Jeanette Winterson, Jennifer A. Smith

Dissertations

This dissertation examines how the constantly evolving gender identity o f a text’s transgender subject relates to the text’s narrative structure and shapes the orientation o f the reader to the text. Accordingly, this project examines how these transgender narratives deploy experimental stylistic techniques that enhance the reader’s experience of ceaseless transitioning by revealing gender as a constant process that never solidifies onto a body and by highlighting the text’s own status as process rather than finalized product. Further, this project examines how a transgender subject and his/her relationship to the body, culture, and narrative ...


From Borderlands And New Mestizas To Nepantlas And Nepantleras: Anzaldúan Theories For Social Change, Analouise Keating Jun 2006

From Borderlands And New Mestizas To Nepantlas And Nepantleras: Anzaldúan Theories For Social Change, Analouise Keating

Human Architecture: Journal of the Sociology of Self-Knowledge

Perhaps not surprisingly—given the multifaceted nature of Borderlands and the diversity of Anzaldúa’s other writings—readers have overlooked additional, equally important dimensions of her work, leaving what Anzaldúa might call “blank spots” that prevent us from grasping the radical nature of her vision for social change and the crucial ways her theories have developed since the 1987 publication of Borderlands. Even as scholars continue exploring Borderlands, it is my hope that we will also investigate and write about Anzaldúa’s pre- and post-Borderlands ideas, especially a variety of interlinked theories she was working on at the time ...


Finding The Center: Constructing The Subaltern Master Narrative, Glenn Jacobs Jun 2006

Finding The Center: Constructing The Subaltern Master Narrative, Glenn Jacobs

Human Architecture: Journal of the Sociology of Self-Knowledge

In clarifying the meanings of the notion in use, and in comparing Spivak's and Gramsci's use of the term, I wish to frame an expanded space within which a "subaltern master narrative" --that is, a broad intellectual perspective encompassing a theoretical grasp of the subaltern's social and historical context as it bears on the possibility of action-can be, and actually has been, constructed. I conclude that Gloria Anzaldúa's transculturated master narrative in its method of construction, in its substantive hybridization and fusion of European and indigenous cultural elements, in its representation of the lives and dilemmas ...


Writing Queer Across The Borders Of Geography, Desire, And Power, Miguel Malagreca Jun 2006

Writing Queer Across The Borders Of Geography, Desire, And Power, Miguel Malagreca

Human Architecture: Journal of the Sociology of Self-Knowledge

In this essay, I position myself as a queer writer in the confines of language, nationality and sexuality with the intention of opening a venue for a non essentialist I to dialogue with anybody situated within the highly politicized arena of queer politics. I refer to my politics differently throughout this essay: I call them politics of the real, or politics from a transitional space, or politics of the radical alterity, or simply queer politics. Political representation is a continuously sliding terrain connecting the personal and the political, a terrain with no security, opened up for dialogue and gestures that ...


Resisting Legibility On The Borders: Opposition To The Violent Intersections Of Race, Nationality, And Sexuality, Kevin Allred Jun 2006

Resisting Legibility On The Borders: Opposition To The Violent Intersections Of Race, Nationality, And Sexuality, Kevin Allred

Human Architecture: Journal of the Sociology of Self-Knowledge

Through an exploration of the capital, cultural, and political impossibility inscribed onto the queer body of color by the nation, this article attempts to interrogate violence against those bodies (specifically utilizing the case of transgender Latina Bibi Barajas) in an attempt to excavate productive strategies of resistance able to counter that violence. By building an alternative archive of resistance, it becomes possible to resist speaking for those whose bodies are subjected to violence and to oppose pulling them into legibility. Instead, one can grieve them in order to powerfully critique the invisible systems of oppression and domination that produce and ...


On Skin As Borderlands: Using Gloria Anzaldúa’S New Mestiza To Understand Self-Injury Among Latinas, Gabriela Sandoval Jun 2006

On Skin As Borderlands: Using Gloria Anzaldúa’S New Mestiza To Understand Self-Injury Among Latinas, Gabriela Sandoval

Human Architecture: Journal of the Sociology of Self-Knowledge

In this article, I develop a sociological perspective of self-injury. I use Gloria Anzaldúa's concepts of Coatlicue States and the New Mestiza Consciousness to expand our understanding of self-injury among Latina youth. I close with an acknowledgement that Gloria Anzaldúa believed in transformation, the transformation of cultures as well as of the self. I believe that by facilitating access to the new mestiza consciousness we can provide Latinas and Chicanas with alternative coping strategies. In this way helping them, as Anzaldúa said, "Transition from sacrificial goat to officiating priestess at the crossroads" (1999:102). The article advances initial thoughts ...

Processes Of Emergence And Connection: Interrelations Of Past, Present, And Future In Journeying For Conocimiento, Karen L. Suyemoto

Human Architecture: Journal of the Sociology of Self-Knowledge

In this essay, rather than focusing upon the professional connections to Anzaldúa in my teaching and scholarship, I have chosen a different path to explore connections between inner work and public acts. I have made a conscious choice to speak about the personal: to make, in some ways, a testimonial to Anzaldúa rather than a traditional scholarly connection. That choice itself and the way I have approached it is an example of connecting inner work to public acts, of trying to create a new middle space. In that choice, I am resisting the stigmas that are related to silencing experiences ...

Conflicts Between The Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court And The Legislature: Campaign Finance Reform And Same-Sex Marriage, Mark C. Miller Jun 2006

Conflicts Between The Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court And The Legislature: Campaign Finance Reform And Same-Sex Marriage, Mark C. Miller

The University of New Hampshire Law Review

[Excerpt] "This article will examine recent interactions and dialogues between the Supreme Judicial Court of Massachusetts (“SJC” or “Supreme Judicial Court”) and the Massachusetts State Legislature. The interactions between courts and legislatures are often cordial, but sometimes these interactions are also highly conflictual. During the 1980s and 1990s, the relationship between the Massachusetts legislature and the Supreme Court was indeed mainly cooperative. Recently, however, in several high profile cases the Supreme Court has been willing to challenge directly the decisions of the legislature and vice versa. Among other controversies, the Court’s 2002 decision requiring that the state legislature fund ...


Don't Ask Don't Tell And The Uri Community, Justin Thames May 2006

Don't Ask Don't Tell And The Uri Community, Justin Thames

Senior Honors Projects

When Bill Clinton and his staff introduced the Don’t Ask Don’t Tell Bill(US Code 10) it created quite a controversy. The bill was designed to replace the then current system of asking for an individual’s sexual orientation on a military application thus making homosexuality a barrier to service in the United States Armed Forces. The bill was finally passed in 1993 and is meant to keep people in power from discriminating on the basis of homosexuality. This new law requires that no investigations be launched to identify the sexual orientation of a service member nor will ...


The Day Of Silence: A Day Of Silent Protest For Glbt Issues Awareness At Uri, Danielle Towne May 2006

The Day Of Silence: A Day Of Silent Protest For Glbt Issues Awareness At Uri, Danielle Towne

Senior Honors Projects

The Day of Silence is a day of silent protest for Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, and Transgender equal rights and treatment in schools. It has been in action annually since 1996 when students at the University of West Virginia decided to take action into their own creative hands. Now, 450,000 students from kindergarten to college spend their day in silence together. This hardly makes holding this program at the University of Rhode Island an original concept. However, for a school who has never observed such a day before and a school with a lack of GLBT involvement, this day could ...

Gendered Approaches To Environmental Justice: An Historical Sampling, Nancy Unger Mar 2006

Gendered Approaches To Environmental Justice: An Historical Sampling, Nancy Unger

History

While race and class are regularly addressed in environmental justice studies, scant attention has been paid to gender. The environmental justice movement formally recognized in the 1980s in no way, however, marks the beginning of the central role played by women in the long history of its concerns.' Abuses based in gender as well as race and class have subjected women to a variety of environmental injustices. However, women's responses to the ever-shifting responsibilities prescribed to their gender, as well as to their particular race and class, have consistently shaped their abilities to affect the environment in positive ways ...

A Living Archive Of Desire: Teresita La Campesina And The Embodiment Of Queer Latino Community Histories, Horacio N. Roque Ramirez Dr. Jan 2006

A Living Archive Of Desire: Teresita La Campesina And The Embodiment Of Queer Latino Community Histories, Horacio N. Roque Ramirez Dr.

Horacio N Roque Ramirez, Ph.D.

Centering the life and death of a male-to-female (MTF) transgender mexicana live ranchera singer, the essay explores the importance of oral history as a method and theory to interrogate LGBT archival practices, questioning what “counts” as both documents and evidence in history. Using sociological, Foucauldian, cultural studies, and oral historical interventions, I ground the late singer’s life story and cultural and political contributions in larger debates about community documentation, archival research, and LGBT and Latina/o historiography.


Queer Ageing, Mark Hughes Jan 2006

Queer Ageing, Mark Hughes

School of Arts and Social Sciences

This paper examines the potential of queer ideas for social gerontology and aged care practice. It overviews developments in lesbian and gay gerontology, and questions heteronormative influences within this literature, particularly in relation to its reliance on concepts such as ‘successful ageing’. The value of a queer approach to ageing and aged care practice lies in its challenging of restrictive binary definitions of both homosexuality and old age. It is argued that a queer ageing approach would encounter older people not just as bodies with sexual needs, but also as erotic beings with diverse sexualities to be celebrated and desired ...
