Transgender Marxism (Paperback)

Pre-order for despatch on publication.


Transgender Marxism collects a set of reflections on the relations between gender and labour, showing how these linked phenomena structure antagonisms in particular social and historical situations. The collection contributes to Marxist Feminism and Social Reproduction Theory through both personal and analytic examinations of the particular social activity demanded of trans people around the world. The aim of the publication is not to provide an exhaustive overview of all trans thinkers using Marxist frameworks, but rather to provide a provocative and illuminating entry point to this mode of theorisation.

No one is spared gendered enculturation, but the contributors to this collection argue that transgender people face particular pressures, oppressions, and state persecution. The first part of the book explores particular movements, and lives, through a Marxist lens. The second section emphasises the 'Marxism' in Transgender Marxism, exploring the particular experience of surviving as trans in light of the totality of gendered experience under capitalism. The contributors also consider how the particular case of transgender life offers opportunities to revise and renew Marxist theorising more generally. The final part twins Marxism with other schools of thought, such as psychoanalysis, mainstream psychology, phenomenology, and Butlerian performativity, to offer clearer insight into transgender experience.
