Identities and Inequalities: GLBT Scientists, Research, and Making of Political Movement  (Conferences / Seminars / Lectures)

In her talk on "Identities and Inequalities: GLBT Scientists, Scientific Research, and the Making of Political Movements," within Women and Minorities Lecture Series, Dr. Nancy Mezey (Monmouth U) will examine the historical formation of lesbian, gay, transgender, and bisexual (LGBT) identities. She will look at past scientists who we now understand as LGBT, as well as current scientists who claim such identities. Dr. Mezey will provide a brief overview of both the natural and social science research on LGBT people, and examine the connection between gender/sexual categories and social inequalities. Drawing on such inequalities, Dr. Mezey will focus specifically on inequalities in Michigan law regarding marriage equality (aka "gay marriage"), and suggest how scientific research both helps and hinders the LGBT movement and paths to equality. She will end the talk with a quick overview of current career options for LGBT scientists within the natural sciences.
