Call for Papers: A Special Issue of Sociological Inquiry
Transgender Studies
Guest Editor: J.E. Sumerau
Abstract deadline: December 15, 2018

"Transgender studies in sociology have expanded dramatically in the past decade... The goal of this special issue is to build on this scholarship and illuminate the importance of continued integration of transgender studies into sociology and broader social science as a whole. In this special issue, we invite contributions from sociologists doing transgender studies in varied social contexts and in relation to differential social structures, issues, and subfields. Specifically, this special issue seeks to highlight emerging studies of transgender populations, experiences, and outcomes throughout contemporary social spheres."
