Lars Horn in Conversation With Elena Passarello

Lars Horn’s Voice of the Fish (Graywolf), the latest Graywolf Press Nonfiction Prize winner, is an interwoven essay collection that explores the trans experience through themes of water, fish, and mythology, set against the backdrop of travels in Russia and a debilitating back injury that left Horn temporarily unable to speak. In Horn’s adept hands, the collection takes shape as a unified book: short vignettes about fish, reliquaries, and antiquities serve as interludes between longer essays, knitting together a sinuous, wave-like form that flows across the book.

Julia Kaye in Conversation With Shena Wolf

My Life in Transition (Andrews McMeel) is the follow-up to the critically acclaimed autobiographical comics collection, Super Late Bloomer, documenting transgender artist Julia Kaye’s life post-transition.

After the nerve-wracking, anxiety-ridden early transition period has ended and…

Art+Feminism Wikipedia Edit-a-thon

Pacific Northwest College of Art Library will host an Art+Feminism Wikipedia Edit-a-thon on March 9, 2019, in the Shipley Collins Mediatheque at PNCA from 10am-2:30pm. This event is designed to improve coverage of cis and transgender women, nonbinary folks, feminism, and the arts on Wikipedia. The edit-a-thon will include tutorials for the beginner Wikipedian, ongoing editing support, reference materials, childcare, and refreshments. People of all gender identities and expressions are invited to participate, particularly trans and cisgender women and nonbinary folks. In a 2011 survey, the Wikimedia Foundation found that less than 10% of its contributors identify as women. This lack of inclusive participation has led to an alarming gap of content in the world’s most popular online research tool. Art+Feminism’s Edit-a-thons and other initiatives…
