Workshop: "Nature's Sexes - Exploring Diversity to Question Norms of Sex and Gender"
22 November 2010
Uppsala University, Sweden
GenNa welcomes PhD. students and researchers to an interdisciplinary workshop concerning biology and social sciences. Our starting point is the variability in sex and sexuality found among organisms, from microbes to animals and plants, how can this diversity challenge constructions of sex and gender? The aim is to question taken-for-granted assumptions of sex and sexuality in social sciences as well as biology. We welcome participants from various fields, such as biology, gender research, sociology etc. Invited speaker is Professor Myra Hird, Queens University, Kingston, Canada.
The workshop takes place on Monday 22 November, 2010 at 9.30-16:00. At Uppsala University, Uppsala, Sweden
