Gender and Sexual Identity for Dummies

November 16 @ 5:30 pm - 8:30 pm

We try our best to understand the latest science and the social and ethical aspects of gender and sexual identity, but the subject remains quite confusing for many of us. Is it genetics, brain chemistry, environment, or something else that makes human sexuality what it is?

We welcome Dr Neil McArthur, Director of the Centre for Professional and Applied Ethics at the University of Manitoba, to help us sort it all out.

Dr. Neil McArthur is an Associate Professor of philosophy at the University of Manitoba, and the Director of the Centre for Professional and Applied Ethics. He specializes in Philosophy and Sexuality (in particular, sexual ethics and alternative sexualities), History of Philosophy, and Legal and Political Philosophy. He has written about sex for VICE

 

About our Monthly Meetings

  Welcome! Our regular monthly meetings are always open to the public. Come early for dinner, drinks, or just to visit. Our social and (optional) dinner time begins at 5:30. Meeting is at 6:30 followed by the presentation at about 7:00 PM. Late-comers and drop-ins are welcome, so if you can’t make it on time or stay till the end, don’t worry. You can eat during the meeting if you’re late – the buffet is open till 8 PM.
