Questions around gender, sex, and sexuality span disciplinary boundaries across the sciences, social sciences, and humanities, but these diverse modes of inquiry are rarely brought into direct conversation. Guest faculty and lecturers Jey Saung (GWSS), Annie Dwyer (CHID), Alys Weinbaum (English), and Dina Greene (Chemistry) will lead a conversation on how their modes of inquiry into questions of gender, sex, and sexuality overlap with one another and with other discussion participants. What kinds of questions do different academic disciplines ask about these topics? How might the humanities and social sciences leverage STEM research within queer, feminist, and anti-racist contexts, and conversely, how might different interpretations of gender and sexuality shape the formulation and interpretation of STEM research? Event moderated by Chelsea Grimmer (English) and sponsored by the UW Genomics Salon.
