meredith reichesHebrew College rabbinical student Dr. Meredith Reiches (she/her/hers) will be speaking on the upcoming December 7, 2022 panel “Celebrating All That We Are: A Conversation on Sex, Gender, and Identity” on religion, science, sex, and gender hosted by the American Association for the Advancement of Science in Washington, DC.

Reiches will be joined by biologist Anne Fausto-Sterling, author of Sexing the Body, and Queer Christian Fellowship leader August Laperche.

In addition to being a student at Hebrew College, Reiches is Associate Professor of Anthropology at the University of Massachusetts Boston, where she works at the intersection of evolutionary biology and gender and race ideology, asking not only how human bodies grow and reproduce, but also how human histories and power relations structure what kinds of questions–and answers–researchers and publics are able to formulate and metabolize. She has published peer-reviewed research in a biological, anthropological and social science journals as well as articles for wider audiences.
