Precarious and Performative Play 2011 - Our Second Set of Web "Events"

Welcome. Below find a list of webpapers emerging from Precarious, Performative, Playful, Potential...Perspectives on Sex and Gender, an interdisciplinary course offered at Bryn Mawr College in Fall 2011. To conclude the second "act" of the course, "De/Meaning Sex and Gender," students are here explaining to a specific audience what's important about some dimension of the biology of gender or sexuality.

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 the biology of gender and sexuality?
