How can anthropological expertise on sex and gender help us better understand the complexities of the world around us, particularly in the face of increasing legislation targeting transgender people and efforts at equity, diversity, and inclusion (EDI)? This panel discussion–featuring scholars from all four fields of anthropology–will delve deeply into sex and gender as categories, drawing on things like cross-cultural approaches, biological studies, and feminist theory. Non-anthropologists and anthropologists alike are warmly welcome!
