GAS Works: Examining the Intersections of Disability, Sex and Gender

Below find a list of webpapers emerging from GAS Works, an interdisciplinary course about gender and sexuality offered at Bryn Mawr College in Fall 2009. Two months into the semester, students have been asked to write about the intersecting categories of disability, sex and gender, articulating both what they have learned and what questions they have, in the places where these identity categories "rub up" against one another.

Take a look around, and feel warmly welcome to respond in the comment area available at the end of each paper. What strikes, intrigues, puzzles you...what, among your reactions, might be of interest or use to the writer, or others in the class, or others who--exploring the internet--might be in search of a thoughtful conversation about gender, sexuality and education.
