We are delighted to invite you to an international conference about Intersex that we are organising with Intersex Activists and with colleagues from the University of Bologna. The early stage conference page is here: https://research.hud.ac.uk/institutes-centres/criss/events/intersex_social_sciences_activism_human_rights_and/

This conference provides an exciting and timely opportunity to explore issues concerning intersex and variations of sex characteristics from human rights, activist, and citizenship perspectives. The conference is being organised as part of a 2 year project taking place in Italy, the UK and Switzerland on Intersex, Citizenship and Human Rights, see https://research.hud.ac.uk/institutes-centres/criss/projects/intersex-dsd_human_rights/

We also welcome individual paper submissions and we will put out a call for these in due course.
