Genetics and Sexuality Workshop

May 11, 2021
1:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Event Description:

Learn more about groundbreaking perspectives on the ethical, political, and social implications of genetic research on human sexuality. In this cross-disciplinary workshop, scholars from psychology, sociology, philosophy, gender studies, and beyond will interrogate the increasingly complex relationship between genetics and behavior. Attendees are invited to consider: What does the latest research show, or not? To what extent does genetic knowledge inform understandings of social difference? What are the limits of biological theories of human sexual diversity? What is at stake for sexual minorities?
