1. The documentary Disclosure and the article “Sensing Transgender” take two different approaches to talking about transgender issues in media. Disclosure focuses on the representation of transgender people on screen. What are some of the problems with existing norms of trans representation that the documentary points out?
2. What are some solutions that the interviewees in Disclosure offer for improving transgender representation?
3. By contrast, “Sensing Transgender” focuses on what happens when transgender people are the ones who make media. Keegan writes that trans directors like the Wachoswki sisters use the “trans imaginary” to imagine the world differently (READ PAGES 2-3 IN ATTACHED FILE ). How would you explain, in your own words, the point that Keegan is making here? What role can cinema play (READ PAGES 2-3 IN ATTACHED FILE).
4). Keegan describes how transgender studies understands trans* as being more than an identity (page 3). How would you paraphrase, in your own words, Keegan’s definition of trans*?
