In women’s and gender studies classes (and beyond), many of us are 
teaching intersex or would like to be. This syllabus workshop is a 
chance to meet and discuss pedagogical aims of teaching intersex and 
how they are and aren’t met by texts and videos we have used or might use to teach intersex in different courses. Whether in our Intro and Feminist Theory classes or the topic specific courses many of us 
teach, what does it mean to think about sex as non-binary, or
”quantum” as the case may be? Let’s discuss and think together about 
some of the challenges and opportunities posed by new literatures on
 the gendering of the body, for our courses and curriculum. Led by 
Angie Willey, Five Colleges Assistant Professor of Feminist Science
