How many genders are there really?

The press has been repeating a rediscovered verity for quite some time now: Girls will be girls and boys will be boys. Education gets practically no say in the matter and, what’s more, this is also borne out by “research”, as education and environment can only modify the material prepared by nature. This workaday theory of the two genders – that there are two and not more and that all individuals are assigned either one or the other of those two options by nature – , whose truth content appears especially attractive in all kinds of crises, is put to the test in this presentation.
A series of lectures organized by Institut für Soziologie/Abt. für Theoretische Soziologie und Sozialanalysen der Johannes Kepler Universität Linz in collaboration with Linz 2009 European Capital of Culture in the Kepler Salon.

Curated by B. Aulenbacher, U. Fuchs, S. Keller, M. Ziegler
