In the second installment of the Clayman Institute's Spring 2011 Event Series, author Kristen Schilt, Assistant Professor of Sociology at the University of Chicago will discuss her book Just One of the Guys? which analyzes workplace inequalities facing the highly understudied transgender population.Just One of the Guys? addresses the unequal treatment that men and women continue to receive at work by exploring the common explanations for this disparity range, from biological differences between the sexes to the conscious and unconscious biases that guide hiring and promotion decisions. The book sheds a new light on this phenomenon by analyzing the unique experiences of transgender men—people designated female at birth whose gender identity is male—on the job. This event is co-sponsored by the Sociology Department and Feminist Studies. It is free and open to all. Books will be available for sale at the event.
