This pre-conference will draw together top scholars in the field to present work on human sexuality from global and cross-cultural perspectives. A diverse set of research topics will be addressed through a series of invited talks from both emerging and established scholars, with particular emphasis on the development and expression of sexual orientation (Dr. Paul Vasey has already committed to speaking about some of the field research he has conducted around the world on this subject). In addition to learning about this cutting-edge work, other talks will address how faculty and graduate students can add an international component to their own human sexuality research and teaching. This year’s pre-conference will also feature a data blitz, in which 10-12 attendees will describe their latest findings in brief.
To be Announced.
