Ann Travers book launch - The Trans Generation
May 31, 7 pm at the Vancouver Public Library, Downtown 350 W Georgia Street.
Dr. Ann Travers, Associate Professor, Department of Sociology and Anthropology, SFU
Dr. Travers' current research activities continue to reflect an interest in the relationship between sport and social justice but her primary focus at present relates to transgender and gender nonconforming children and youth in the Greater Vancouver Area specifically and Canada and the United States more generally. She has just published a manuscript entitled The Trans Generation: How Trans Kids (and Their Parents) Are Creating a Gender Revolution. She is also the Principal Investigator on a SSHRC Insight Grant titled” Gender Vectors of the GVA: using video game technology to assess social safety nets for transgender and gender nonconforming children and youth” in the lower mainland.
