Hello, my awesome and intelligent f-list (and passerby); can I have your help? I signed up to moderate a panel at Con.Txt called: Gender and Sexuality Across Cultures.

I didn't propose the panel originally, but hey, relevant to my interests! The challenge now (in the next three weeks) is to find the right material to make this a rich, informative, engaging session.

Who can point me in some good directions for research? Legit sources, texts, lines of thought, specialists in this area. All I have now is interest, good analytical and research skills, and my college papers on this topic for Heian-period Japan and 20th century American pop culture. NOT ENOUGH.

Comment here, PM me, email -- I'll take info any way you can provide it. Thank you!

Here's the write-up of the panel:
“Concepts of gender and sexuality have changed and varied in complex ways across the whole scope of human culture, and for people writing about other places and times, it's a good idea to step outside the categories you're used to. Learn some of the basics of gender and sexuality across cultures, and where to find out more, and discuss how to use that knowledge in fiction without erasing the modern lived experience of your readers.”
