GUEST EDITORS’ INTRODUCTION Embodying the Temporal – reflections th on the 10 International Somatechnics Conference: Technicity, Temporality, Embodiment, 30 November–3 December, 2016, Byron Bay Australia Akkadia Ford, Quinn Eades and Holly Randell-Moon* ‘… every breath that a trans person takes is a revolution’ Susan Stryker, Keynote Address. In their Keynote address, Associate Professor Susan Stryker commu- nicated the profound perspective that guides the theoretical framing of trans in this Special Issue: namely that through the phenomenology of being, trans narratives link all of us to a revolution in the unmaking of normativities – whether racialised, gendered, sexualised, or in any way ‘othered’– and the creation of new potentialities. This Special Issue, entitled, ‘Trans Narratives’, identifies how it is the ontological being that provides the form, the bodily substance from which trans narratives emerge and are temporally communicated in range of representational strategies and media. As such, it is necessary to investigate trans narratives though interdisciplinary fields in order to disclose these strategies. Disciplines mobilised for this task include: media and communications, science and technology studies, visual and performing arts, gender, sexuality and trans studies.
