Beyond Binary: Genders in the Past, Present, and Future Conference
Date / Time
October 7, 2021 - October 8, 2021
“Beyond Binary: Genders in the Past, Present, and Future Conference,” a virtual conference that explores nonbinary gender in an interdisciplinary context, takes place Oct. 7-8.
While journalists note that nonbinary identity is seeping into the national consciousness, this series of panels, performances and conversations will bring more focused attention to the nonbinary with discussions of gender relations from the multiple points of view afforded by humanistic inquiry.
Drawing together researchers, writers, artists and activists, the discussions will explore patterns of thought and practice in history, philosophy, culture and the arts that will contribute to new understanding and inspire further conversation. What is the history of nonbinary gender identity? How does it connect to other ways of thinking of gender? How does nonbinary gender connect to histories and theories of sexuality? How are new ways of thinking about gender contributing to changes in law, politics, and culture?
The conference will take place via Zoom.
