Content Description

Oral history interviews with Smith College students and alumnae who identify as trans and/or non-binary, conducted by Sam Davis (Class of 2017) for his documentary project entitled "In Our Own Words: On Being Trans at Smith." The interviews explore how these trans students fit into Smith's vision of "women for the world"; how are trans students supported or unsupported by the administration and their fellow students; and issues of erasure, hypervisibility, transphobia, views about trans students within all levels of the institution, and the ongoing debate of who does and does not "belong" at Smith.
