Faculty/Staff Detail

Gretchen Herrmann, library, participated in a book reading at Buffalo Street Books in Ithaca, N.Y., on Oct. 23. She read from an article she had published titled "His and Hers: Gender and Garage Sales," which was included in the recently released edited collection Doing Gender Diversity: Readings in Theory and Real-World Experience, (Westview Press) edited by Lis Maurer, LGBT Education, Outreach and Services Program Director, and Rebecca Plante, associate professor of sociology at Ithaca College. The book focuses on both hegemonic and transgressive gender development, roles, identities and practices and demonstrates the multiple ways in which the universe of gender is socially, culturally and historically constructed. Herrmann's article focuses on the gendered patterns of belief and behavior that constitute "doing gender" in the social microcosm of the U.S. garage sale.
