Primary Instructor:

Are we born with a sex; are we given one; can we choose one – or none? Where does sex end and gender begin? How are we sexed, and who sexes us? The goal in this course is to examine intersexualities in an interdisciplinary fashion from various standpoints and intersections using a feminist lens. Topics will range from biological development of sexual organs, disorders of sex development, clinical and biomedical approaches, historical perspectives, identity and agency, representations in media and art, activism and advocacy, and objectifications in teaching.
