On Friday October 23 at 6 PM at Buffalo Street Books in downtown Ithaca, I’ll be celebrating the publication of Doing Gender Diversity: Readings in Theory and Real-World Experience, my new book with co-editor Rebecca Plante. Whether you are:
- Back from break and ready for new ideas and discussion
- Looking to meet like-minded people on campus and in the community
- A fan or aspiring fan of IC associate professor Rebecca Plante
- Wondering about this new book that you keep hearing about
- Plotting your next opportunity to enjoy free cheese, fruit, and other goodies, as well as food for thought
Or, if you've simply been meaning to make the trek downtown, but have been waiting for the perfect reason to do so, then come downtown to celebrate the book's release!
What is gender diversity? Doesn't diversity often mean a focus on people who vary from typically gendered people, like intersex people and drag queens? What would it mean to talk about gender diversities? Come find out more! In our book, we demonstrate the multiple ways in which the universe of gender is socially, culturally, and historically constructed. The book focuses on both hegemonic and transgressive gender development, roles, identities, and practices.
