Sampler Sex Meredith


Type your bit here.

If we want to study sex and gender and sexualities and gender-identities, it behooves us to beef up on classics old and new. This sampler collects together a number of "must-reads" on this broad topic with no illusions that it is either comprehensive or canonical. Instead these readings are important and available (in our anthology).
