I’m B Aultman (Brandon), a PhD student of political science at the City University of New York. My work currently focuses on the intersection(s) of trans* studies, human geography (particularly the ‘spatial turn’ in geography), social movements, and ethnography. How do political identities form in terms of space? How can gender identities/expressions be understood through a turn to spatial theories? I hope to blend the works of Edward Soja, Bruno Latour, Susan Stryker, Paisley Currah, and others, to understand the complex ways that gender/sex and space are co-functioning in social movements.
I have written and published on various issues, ranging from the concept of cisgender (in TSQ to be published next year) and the history of sexual politics in the U.S. to American political institutions. To date, I have served in two editorial capacities for The Politics of Sexuality and Global HIV/AIDS Politics, Policy, and Activism.
