Trish Salah

Trish Salah is a Montreal-based writer, activist and teacher at Concordia’s Simone de Beauvoir Institute and in Sociology and Women’s Studies at Bishop's Universities.

She has been politically active in organizing around a range of issues, including Palestinian solidarity, sex workers' rights, anti-racism and anti-capitalism, employment security and healthcare for transsexual and transgender people. Salah is a former editor of Fuse magazine.

Her doctorate was taken in the Department of English at York University; Dr. Barbara Godard was her supervisor for the writing of her dissertation, “Writing Trans Genre: an inquiry into Transsexual and Transgender Rhetorics, Affects and Politics,” which spans the 20th century in making a genealogy of contemporary transgender discourses. It situates evolving transgender figures and subjectivities in relation to psychoanalytic case studies and theory, feminist theory and fiction, queer and trans cultural and literary production. It also queers the genealogical project by bringing psychoanalytic attention to the figural economies within which transgender representation emerged.

Her writing addresses questions of desire, identity and the precarity of being and belonging. Her first book of poetry, Wanting in Arabic, was published in 2002 by TSAR Books and her work appears in recent issues of the journals Open Letter, No More Potlucks, Aufgabe, West Coast Line. Her new manuscript, “Lyric Sexology,” is near completion.
