I'm Saqer (pronouns: he/they).
I work on issues in Translation Studies, Trans* and Intersex Studies, and Medieval Islamic Studies.
I've got affiliations with Decolonial Studies and the larger "Religious" Studies discipline.
Currently finishing up my dissertation at Binghamton University.
In 2016, I published a paper in the TSQ titled:

I discussed in it a case described in a Fatimid-era legal manual where a person had their body examined in order to be recognized as male and have a marriage voided.
