GREENVILLE, S.C. (AP) — Furman University is hosting a discussion on gender and women’s issues.

On Friday, the Greenville school is hosting the 10th Associated Colleges of the South conference on Women’s/Gender Studies.

The two-day conference is entitled “Intersections and Assemblages: Genders and Sexualities Across Cultures.”

Conference attendance requires a registration fee, but two events are free and open to the public. These include the keynote address, “Angry White Men: An Intersectional Analysis of Gender on the Extreme Right,” by Dr. Michael Kimmel, distinguished professor of sociology at Stony Brook University.

A Saturday session entitled “Bodies, Borders, Citizenships” is also open to the public without charge.

Organizers say they expect nearly 90 participants from institutions as far away as Canada, the United Kingdom, Brazil and India.
