Digital Transgender Archive | FHI-NCCU Digital Humanities Fellowship

Dr. K.J. Rawson directs the Digital Transgender Archive at the College of the Holy Cross. In this talk, he describes how he and his colleagues approached the creation of the archive: first, by considering “transgender” as a practice rather than an identity category, one that refers to "a broad and inclusive range of non-normative gender practices,” and secondly, by working to catalogue digital materials related to transgender practice.

The stated goal of the Digital Transgender Archive is "to increase the accessibility of transgender history by providing an online hub for digitized historical materials, born-digital materials, and information on archival holdings throughout the world." Dr. Rawson delivered the keynote address at the May 4, 2017 symposium of the FHI-NCCU Digital Humanities Initiative.
