stef m. shuster

stef m. shuster is an assistant professor of sociology at Michigan State University. Their current research in gender, medicine, and feminist science studies considers how expertise and evidence is constructed, mobilized, and weaponized, which is the subject of their book, Trans Medicine: The Emergence and Practice of Treating Gender (NYU Press).

In Trans Medicine, shuster traces the development of this medical field from the 1950s to modern medicine to show how providers create and use scientific and medical evidence to quell uncertainty, “treat” a gender identity, and uphold their authority.
