Contributor Notes

Lieke Hettinga is a double-degree PhD Candidate at the Department of Gender Studies at Central European University and at the Graduate Gender Program of Utrecht University. Their research examines ways in which artists and activists visualize, represent, and/or enact nonnormative embodiments, more specifically looking at the intersection of trans and disability visual politics and poetics of the body. By exploring how the visual rhetoric of trans and disability art and activism is complexly entangled with questions pertaining to rights, recognition, and appearance, they investigate practices that allow for a reconsideration of the possible connections, affinities, and dissonances between transgender and disability politics.
