Dr. T.J. Jourian will visit NIU at 12 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 15, to present “My masculinity is a little love poem to myself: Transmasculine college students’ conceptualizations of masculinity,” in Reavis Hall, Room 103.

During his presentation, Jourian will talk about the racialized, embodied and authentic pathways undertaken by transmasculine college students, with broad implications for intersectional gender justice work. Jourian’s talk will be based on research that he completed for his dissertation.

Jourian is a social justice activist and educator. He was a cast member of the 2005 documentary “TransGeneration.”

This is the first talk in the Center for the Study of Women, Gender & Sexuality’s 2016-2017 LGBT Studies Brownbag Lunch Series.

This event is free and open to all.
