18. Alternative Gender

This is the comment page for the second part of chapter 10, “Gender” in Cultural Anthropology. After reading the first part on Gender, we focused on “Alternative Gender Identities.” We also took a quick look at the first 5-6 paragraphs of “Why English Might Let Go of ‘He’ and ‘She’” by anthropologist Tom Boellstorff.

The next class begins a discussion of Globalisation.



Living Anthropologically means documenting history, interconnection, and power during a time of global transformation. We need to care for others as we attempt to build a world together.
