Welcome to the Blog for the 2008-09 Carolina Creative Campus – The Gender Project. Following on from last year’s conversation on capital punishment, this year Carolina Creative Campus is looking at issues of gender and identity, and how they impact us and those around us everyday.
So often our day-to-day activities are grounded in concepts and constructs of what gender is or means. As I have begun to talk about this project with people on and off campus the conversation often takes an immediate turn to the question – what do you mean by ‘gender’?
So, what do we mean when we talk about gender? What is it we are really talking about? Is it about the differences between men and women? What sexual identity means? Is gender dichotomized or does it fall on a continuum?
These are only a few of the many questions that will be addressed across campus and in the community this year.
You can check back soon at www.carolinacreativecampus.org for an updated list of events and information, and keep reading the blog as the year goes on. We will be having a range of people contributing to this conversation as bloggers, and I invite you to participate by sharing your comments, and check back for other ways to share your perspectives and stories.
