Chemical Entanglements – Gender & Exposure
May 4-5, 2017
FREE and OPEN to the public!
This symposium will convene a group of scholars, scientists and community based researchers, artists, documentarians, and policy makers to assess the gendered impacts of (primarily endocrine-disrupting) chemicals on human populations. By marshaling a variety of perspectives—laboratory, ethnographic, epidemiological, and narrative, this transdisciplinary collaboration will seek to explore how gender has made a difference in the public’s knowledge with regard to the cumulative effects of environmental toxins. Speakers will use methods from across scholarly disciplines to assess the way gendered patterns of exposure contribute to illnesses such as Toxicant-Induced Loss of Tolerance (TILT), Multiple Chemical Sensitivity (MCS) and others.
