Cutting up words kathy acker s trans locutions

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This article argues that Kathy Acker articulates an understanding of transness through language. More than a meditation on gender-nonnormative characters in Acker s work, the article dwells on how Acker uses language as a vector through which to imply the residue of a certain understanding of trans. In short, examined here is Acker as a trans philosophical thinker, one whose thinking manifested in how she uses language.
