Beyond "The Five Sexes": A Collaborative Workshop for Teachers

Friday, November 16, 2012
Five College Women's Studies Research Center
Mount Holyoke College
83 College Street
South Hadley

In women's and gender studies classes (and beyond), many of us are teaching intersex or would like to be. This syllabus workshop is a chance to meet and discuss pedagogical aims of teaching intersex and how they are and aren't met by texts and videos we have used or might use to teach intersex in different courses. Whether in our Intro and Feminist Theory classes or the topic specific courses many of us teach, what does it mean to think about sex as non-binary, or "quantum" as the case may be? Let's discuss and think together about some of the challenges and opportunities posed by new literatures on the gendering of the body, for our courses and curriculum. Led by Angie Willey, Five Colleges Assistant Professor of Feminist Science Studies.

Advance registration workshop. RSVP by November 9 to awilley@wost.umass.edu
