Transgender Intersections with Peace and Violence

Under the guest editorship of Joss Inton-Campbell, transgender researcher/activist, and Ph.D. Candidate with the National Centre for Peace and Conflict Studies at the University of Otago, and Mikee Inton-Campbell, PhD,trans academic and activist from the Philippines assistant professor of Trans and Queer of Color Studies at California State University San Marcos, Peace Review: A Journal of Social Justice invites essays for a special issue on Transgender Intersections with Peace and Violence.

We welcome submissions for a special issue that explores the many ways transgender lives, communities, activism, and research intersect with issues of peace and violence. Trans people have historically been one of the most targeted groups at the intersections of violence based upon gender, race, ethnicity, immigration status, disability, and class. At the same time, trans communities have hard-won knowledge and experience from the frontlines of activism and advocacy for racial justice, gender equality, prison abolition, public housing, and other social justice movements. This issue aims to platform trans voices from academia, creative and performance arts, civil society, the public sector, and the private sector on issues of peace, violence, conflict, and justice. Essays can employ theoretical, historical, empirical, applied, activist, and other approaches to these topics. These themes are intended to be inclusive and expansive to the diversity of gender identities including: transgender, transsexual, non-binary, and gender non-conforming.

General themes that contributors can address in their essays include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Approaches to transgender issues from a Peace and Conflict Studies lens
  • Approaches to peace and violence from a Trans Studies lens
  • Trans perspectives and research on direct, structural, and cultural violence
  • Trans perspectives and research on direct, structural, and cultural peace
  • Gender-based violence targeting gender non-conformity
  • Transicide, Transicidio, Transfemicide, Transfeminicidios, and other understandings of how trans people are targeted with lethal violence because of their gender
  • Domestic violence and transgender issues
  • Relationships between colonization and violence against trans people
  • Violence that targets trans and gender non-conforming people along intersecting identities of race, ethnicity, nationality, immigration status, mental health, disability, class, and poverty
  • Media and its relationship to violence and discrimination against transgender people
  • Roles of trans people in social justice, peacebuilding, and human rights work
  • Knowledge and wisdom from trans communities that contributes to resiliency, collective action, and peacebuilding
  • Critical approaches to conventional peace and violence discourse based upon trans perspectives, lives, and research
  • Views on public management practices and public policy that can help ensure trans people are served by peace, justice, and public goods
  • Trans perspectives on related fields, such as queer studies, gender studies, race and ethnicity studies, criminal justice, law, political science, social psychology, media studies, and public health.
