By crossing the gender divide, the shared, lived experience of people of transgender identity has infiltrated
mainstream consciousness and radicalized questions surrounding gender. What does it mean to be a man or
a woman? How fluid an experience IS gender?

This symposium will look at the way in which the concept of gender fluidity informs developmental
considerations of gender identity and gendered identifications; how it both supports a progressive
understanding of gender, while presenting a challenge to the notions of binary gender ingrained in the
social order. How do we respond to shifting gender mores and previously unthought possibilities of gender
change? Is psychoanalysis ready for such a transition? We will explore these questions through case
material and characters in literary fiction.

Join us for an inspiring day of dialogue from the interweaving perspectives of literary, sociological, and psychoanalytic thinkers.

Learning Objectives:
Following this symposium, attendees will:
Have gained an understanding of the concept of gender fluidity.
Be able to distinguish between gender fluidity and gender rigidity.
Have knowledge of the developmental factors affecting gender identification, including the roles of mind, body and relationship.
Be more familiarized with current debates in the field of transexuality/identity.
Be more mindful of gender based alternatives to the traditional Canadian family unit.
Identify alternative axes of sexual difference using the myth of Tiresias, the first transgendered individual in folklore.
Describe trans development as appreciated from within the cultural and clinical milieu.
