Week 2--Sex and Gender, Biology and Literature

This week we'll dig further into our exploration of critical feminism from two different angles: on Tuesday, Paul Grobstein of the Bryn Mawr biology department will lead us in a conversation about what biology has to teach us about sex and gender; on Thursday, we'll begin reading Jeffrey Eugenides' novel Middlesex, a literary exploration of some of the complexities of gender identity. Post here your reactions to these two perspectives: how are biology and literature speaking together or differently to you this week? What is either or both teaching you about the various possibilities for feminist politics?
