The Hebrew University of Jerusalem will host an international conference, "Building Interdisciplinary Bridges for Research and Recognition of Intersexed Bodies," focused on the complex experiences and challenges of people born with intersexual bodies.

Panels will include Uniting Intersex Activism; Challenging the Socio-Medical Discourse on Intersex/DSD; Queering Temporal Gaze and Experience; New Medical Perspectives; and Raising Social Awareness on Intersexuality.

Presentations will cover such issues as Intersex Rights; Intersex Communities in Australia; The Structure of Intersex Discourse in Japan; The Chinese Perspectives of Intersexuality; Family, Society and Intersex Children in Ukraine; Comparing Medical Treatment Practices in Israel and Germany; and Intersex Rights in the UK and Switzerland.
