This two-day conference provides a multidisciplinary forum for the further development of social science approaches to intersex and variations of sex characteristics.

Sociological, anthropological, political science, philosophical, psychological and other approaches are all crucial for developing knowledge that centres the experiences and insights of intersex people and those with variations of sex characteristics.

A commitment to fostering positive intersex activist and academic alliances lies at the heart of this conference. Further details can be found here
