Queer/Trans Caucus

The Queer/Trans (Q/T) Caucus is allied with the GL/Q Caucus of the Modern Language Association, a caucus associated with the GLQ journal. The caucus has done most of its organizing work, including the awarding of prizes, sponsoring of panels, and celebrating landmark events such as the GLQ journal’s recent 25th anniversary, in association with MLA annual meetings since 1974. Our ASA affiliation represents the deep interdisciplinarity and intersectionality of the fields of queer and trans studies. In this way we seek to bring form to the vibrant ways that ASA encourages queer and trans studies by producing programming, a series of annual awards to recognize significant scholarship and activism, and social events that facilitate member interaction and celebrate caucus scholarship and publications.
