Week 2: Diversity, Gender, and Sexuality in Nature and People
We turn this week to the perspectives of two biologists on diversity, gender, and sexuality in nature and people. For Tuesday's class, please read Paul Grobstein's short essay, Diversity and Deviance: A Biological Perspective, and 50 pp. (or so!) of the "Animal Rainbows" section of Joan Roughgarden's book. For Thursday, ditto in the "Human Rainbows" section. And then think out loud here about what you've read and heard in our discussions...what surprised, puzzled, pleased, angered you? What can you do w/ what you are learning? How does it challenge or change what you thought you knew?
