Meet up, grab a beer, and join the discussion with Jennifer Bosson, Sara Crawley, Sam Obeid, and MC Whitlock. Bosson is a social psychologist who studies gender and stereptypes. Her work on precarious manhood identifies a widespread tendency to view the male gender role as elusive and tenuous, and examines the implications of this precariousness for men's personal and social functioning.
This talk unpacks stereotypical ideas on the static state of identity, revealing through examples of lived experience and scholarship that identity is constantly evolving. Instead of challenging indentities unlike our own. Crawley and Obeid suggest we take a vested interest in understanding that "we are all trans".
Whitlock is a constructionist sociologist who is finishering her dissertation on feminist bookstores in the U.S. South. Her work focuses on understanding and deconstructing contentious feminist ideas about gender over the past forty years - and specifically focuses on the transition from woman to human.
