Are we bound by gender?  With presentations, performances, and conversations, the 2015 Buffalo Humanities Festival will attempt to answer that question by going beyond the traditional oppositions of male/female and gay/straight.  Some experts claim that we live in a “post-gender” era, with stay-at-home dads, female CEOs, and transgendered characters on TV.  Yet history, literature, music, and the arts suggest that the story of gender is more complicated – and more interesting – than we often take it to be.  Join us from September 23rd to the 26th for a festival of mind-bending ideas.
