I am so excited to be part of this new book coming from University of Rochester Press, edited by Christine Kray, Tamar Carroll and Hinda Mandell. My contribution, “This is Vienna: Parents of Transgender Children from Pride to Survival in the Aftermath of the 2016 Election,” addresses the experiences of transgender children and their families during the 2016 presidential campaign, and in the immediate, frightening aftermath.

I am so pleased to be featured in this most recent special issue of Anthropology News, focusing on #MeToo in Anthropology. The visual scholarship I produced is a reflection on my own and others’ experience in the field, navigating disciplinary and other violence. My work as an artist and ethnographer is rooted in “redirecting conversations about social phenomena by enabling others to vicariously experience the world” (Barone & Eisner 2012, 20), and I hope this piece is a step in that direction, to divert feeling– even painful feelings– toward understanding and action.
