The 2008-09 Carolina Creative Campus theme was The Gender Project.
Following on from the 2007-08 yearâ€™s conversation on capital punishment,Â The Gender Project looked 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. Often, the conversation takes an immediate turn to the question â€“ what do you mean by â€˜genderâ€™?
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 were addressed across campus and in the community.
