Trans Care: A Critical Conversation with Hil Malatino

The Rock Ethics Institute, with the Department of Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies, invite you to “Trans Care: A Critical Conversation,” on Tuesday, December 1 at 4:00 p.m.

We are proud to host a conversation about Hil Malatino’s new book, Trans Care, with the author, Ann Cvetkovich (Carleton University), and Jules Gill-Peterson (University of Pittsburgh). The panel will explore themes raised in Dr. Malatino’s book, such as the unique challenges faced by trans individuals, how traditional systems of support often fail them, and why we must radically rethink the ethics of care as it applies to them.

Trans Care (University of Minnesota Press, 2020) is a critical intervention in the ways that care labor and care ethics have heretofore been thought, arguing that dominant modes of conceiving and critiquing the politics and distribution of care entrench normative and ciscentric familial structures and gendered arrangements.

This webinar event is free and open to the public, but requires advance registration. Please contact Rock Ethics Institute Associate Director Erin Heidt-Forsythe at, if you have any questions about the event.
