Pima Hosts Trans Resilience Talk

April 13, 1:00 pm | Desert Vista Campus

Pima Community College will host a special keynote on modes of trans resilience through which trans people can work together to sustain queer livelihood.

Z Nicolazzo, Ph.D., will present “Noticing Practices of Trans Resilience,” taken from previously published work with trans college students. The event is at 1 p.m. April 13 in the Community Room-F123 at Desert Vista Campus, 5901 S. Calle Santa Cruz.

Nicolazzo’s exploration of trans resilience honors kinship connections as foundational to social life, without taking an overly sanguine approach to the deeply antitrans animus through which trans people are forced to wade. Nicolazzo is an Associate Professor of Trans* Studies in Education at the Center for the Study of Higher Education and a member of the Trans* Studies Initiative at the University of Arizona.
