Sociological Analysis of Trans and Intersex Activism study

A Cross-national Analysis of Intersex and Transgender Social Movements and their Relationships

Researcher: Rhi Humphrey r.humphrey.1@research.gla.ac.uk07581250337

The purpose of this study is to conduct a sociological analysis of trans and intersex activism and the relationships within these activisms. This study will also fulfil the requirements for a PhD. If you choose to take part Rhi will have an in-person interview. If this isn’t possible for any reason then a skype interview or focus group could be arranged.

This research project will develop a sociological analysis of trans and intersex activism, the work of activists for trans and intersex related campaigns and the relationships between individual activists as well as within groups. This research project is being conducted by a PhD researcher in sociology in the College of Social Sciences at the University of Glasgow, Scotland. I have previously investigated the effects of trans media representation on trans audiences and barriers to accessing higher education faced by trans students. Additionally, I have been active in trans activism and broader LGBTI activism for the last 10 years.

Rhi will be looking to conduct interviews in:

  • Melbourne from 5th to October 8th, and from the 15th to the 29th October;
  • Sydney from the 9th to the 14th October; and
  • Canberra from Friday 21st to Sunday 23rd October.

Attached is an Invitation_to_Interview_Final and a PLS_Final with details about the research and the interview process.

Have your say! :D
