While previous research exposes the insidious nature of gender binary discourses in education, little work to date has explored the affective roots of these discourses...
In other words, research has explored that the discourses exist, and what effects they have on trans and gender non-conforming students; however, there has not been substantive exploration of the affective roots from which these discourses grow.

In this talk, Dr. Nicolazzo explores the possibilities of imagining an ethnography of affect to excavate how “regimes of expressivity” undergird restrictive notions of gender, as well as the discourses of racism, settler colonization, and compulsory able-bodiedness that affix themselves to notions of binary gender.
