Intersex: Beyond the Binary


Recent controversies about the medical management of intersex individuals challenge the common idea that intersex should be considered first from the biomedical point of view, and second with an eye on ethical and socio-political issues. What does ‘caring’ mean when dealing with intersex as an issue that is at the same time biomedical, ethical, and political? What kind of transformation does the acknowledgment of intersex individuals entail for our society and democracy? This symposium brings together biologists, philosophers, and social scientists in order to rethink both the sexed and gendered structure of our societies as well as the status given to intersex individuals.

This event is free and open to the public.
