Abstract
This study explores a transmasculine embodiment through bodies, acts, and objects,
from a new materialist perspective. The study is situated within the field of
transgender studies, and the research question, ‘how can transmasculine
embodiment through the materialities of the body and everyday acts and objects be
understood through new materialism’, is answered through an autoethnography.
Key findings are that a) a trans-becoming emerges through the phenomenon of
meeting someone’s eyes, b) through material-discursive practices transmasculine
people work with and against the body, and c) onto-epistemologies of race and
gender emerge through the interplay of temporal, spatial, and corporeal processes.
