The WGSS program welcomes Dr. Mark Jordan from Harvard, who will discuss sexual identity.

A system for regulating sex usually relies on a handful of basic categories.  It works to make those categories both necessary and natural.  You are not supposed to talk about sex without them, and you should accept them as obvious facts about human beings.  For us, “sexual identity” has become a basic category.  But is “identity” really the best way to talk or think about the fluidity of human desiring?

This event is free and open to the public.
