Imaginative Embodiment: Dewey and the Aesthetic Experience of Transsexual Liminality

View File

Engaging the intellectual corpus of John Dewey, the purpose of this paper is to articulate what we might term “imaginative embodiment,” an intimate process of cultivating the situated, sexed body in light of the possible, which I argue finds peculiar expression in the precarious emergence and experience of transsexual liminality. Stressing the intimate and interpretive movements of the queer body as situation, I argue that the aesthetic experience of transsexual liminality emerges and unfolds as a continuous process of imaginative embodiment through which queer circuits of corporeal possibility and transcendence are cultivated.
