The structuring axes (sic) of this work are the discourses of ‘Hellenism’ and ‘Greekness’, which are understood as two contrasting theoretical approaches to nationalism that inform contemporary Greek identity construction.
“Books such as Trans Bodies, Trans Selves focus almost entirely on trans men, while making only the most brief reference to the fact that trans women can bank their sperm. This reproduces a trans-misogynist dynamic in which trans men are highly valued by queer communities and transgender women’s concerns and existence are erased.”
