Description: Sociology tells us that humans are social beings and behave in compliance with or resistance to societal norms and mores. Science tells us that humans are water based, require a nervous system, and have evolved. What would you say you are? This session will look at one aspect of human existence that draws from inquires posed by the fields of philosophy and women studies. We will identify the classifications, or socially constructed labels, we inscribe on ourselves and proscribe on others and where those identities converge. We will then examine the relationship between these identities and living in an unequal society; more specifically, how the function of power-oppression marks one’s advantage or disadvantage position.
