Liz Montegary, UC Davis

Liz Montegary examines how calls for the repeal of the U.S. military’s “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy, mainstream lesbian and gay organizations like the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) often rely on the testimonies of lesbian and gay service members who “come out” against the federally mandated ban on openly homosexual conduct in the military.

Documents and Disguises: Transgender Politics, Travel, and U.S. State Surveillance

Toby Beauchamp, UC Davis

Toby Beauchamp draws on the critical lens of transgender studies to examine contemporary modes of state surveillance, suggesting that gender-nonconforming bodies are bound up in surveillance practices intimately tied to state security, nationalism, and the "us/them," "either/or" rhetoric that underpins U.S. military and government constructions of safety.
