[PAST EVENT] The 21st Annual Minnie G. Braithwaite Lecture in Gender, Sexuality and Women's Studies: Arlene Stein
Lecture will start promptly at 7pm in Tucker Theatre with a light reception to follow in Tucker Lobby at 8pm. Everyone is welcome.
A few years ago, Arlene Stein heard about a surgeon in Florida who was doing a brisk business masculinizing the chests of female-assigned individuals. She decided to visit his office and interview individuals undergoing ?top surgery.? In this talk, she will summarize her findings, telling the stories of four individuals who underwent surgery that day, and what they tell us about transgender masculinity and the future of gender.
