My name is Brianna Watson. I am 19 years old, in my third semester of study, currently on an exchange program in Tubingen, Germany, from Edmonton, Canada.
For my next four or five posts I would like to do a series analyzing third genders in various cultures; comparing those societies with that of the western ‘ideal’ culture which has been the largest contributor to the scientific sphere. Specifically I will be researching how different cultures have organized gender and sex into their societies and what historical events or modes of thought led to that form of organization. I will be doing this from the point of view of critiquing the current and historical organization of gender in western cultures using case studies of transgender women across the globe.
