Sex, Gender, and Sexuality

A public performance by women of Ponchom Shur, a group of acid survivors from Bangladesh. This research is being conducted by Dr. Lamia Karim as part of the project "Voices Breaking Boundaries."

examines the evolutionary dimensions of sex and sexuality; variations in constructions of sex, gender, sexuality, and the body; intersections of systems of sexuality and gender with other systems of inequality such as class, race, ethnicity and political economy through the lens of social movements and popular culture; and kinship systems, broadly construed, as these relate to gender and sexuality regimes, through time and across cultures.
