dc.description.abstractAs academics are to understand it, transgender studies generally concerns itself with the triangulated relationship between the body, culture, and power (the power to name, to normalize, and to efface). This thesis is intimately concerned with such subjects, examining representations of the body, culture, and power in two contemporary transgender texts: Torrey Peters’ 2021 novel Detransition, Baby, and Maggie Nelson’s 2015 autobiography The Argonauts. In these two examples of transgender literature, authors represent the body as a heuristic tool; a field against which normative fantasies play out in frequently incongruent ways.en_US
