What are gender and race? Are they natural, biological phenomena, or are they socially constructed, even performative?

In what sense are gender and race identities real, and what makes them so? What role do power and freedom play in our ascriptions of gender and race identity and selfhood?

To answer these questions, we will look at Buddhist approaches to the metaphysics, epistemology and ethics of gender and race in conversation with contemporary perspectives.
