Asia: "Contested Intimacies in Taiwan" (Lecture)

  • Starts: 12:30 pm on Thursday, March 5, 2015
This presentation focuses on two cases that unfolded in overlapping sequence beginning in 2011 in Taiwan. The first case involved the denationalization of an immigrant wife and her citizen child following discovery of the child's uncertain paternity (and, hence, the wife's non-monogamous sexuality). The second case was sparked by the government's effort to revoke a legal marriage between two transgender individuals, both citizens by birth.
