UHCL Anthropology Program

For future, current, and past Anthropology students at UHCL and for those that have an interest in our program and activities!

What it is: Anthropology is a unique discipline that studies the human being as a whole. The Anthropology Program at UHCL focuses on Cultural Anthropology—using cross-cultural research, cultural anthropologists attempt to make meaning of the different ways to be human, as well as focus on the ‘How?’ and ‘Why?’ of cultural ways, the causes, connections, and effects of certain elements of culture.

Learning new vocabulary and identities can be difficult, but many of these words actually apply to you! So for this Trans Day of Visibility, take a little time to acquaint yourself with these terms so that you can be the best, most supportive ally possible.

As we learn more about each other, sometimes it's helpful for us to create new vocabulary to describe ourselves and find other folks who are like us in s*xuality, romance, gender, or body.

We're so proud of the community work that went into creating this poster.

Image description and full text transcript of the infographic poster:

❄️Image description: A cartoon human is centered on a poster. The human has a blue cartoon brain in their head, red/yellow flames in their chest, a pink heart in their chest, a green star where their legs meet their torso, and an orange aura surrounding them. There is a thought bubble over the person’s head with a question mark inside. The blue brain points to a blue section titled “Gender Identity”. The green star points to a green section titled “Assigned Gender/Sex At Birth”. The orange aura points to an orange section titled “Gender Expression”. The red/yellow flames points to a yellow section titled “Sexual Orientation”. The pink heart points to a pink section titles “Romantic Orientation”. There is a light purple box with a dark border at the bottom with extra text and a QR Code. Each section title includes a small image of a cartoon human with exclamation points over their head, and the light purple box with extra text and a QR code has a larger version of the same cartoon human with exclamation points on top of the box. The rest of this description is a transcript of the text on the poster.

Inters*x: A naturally occurring variation of s*x characteristics, reproductive organs, and/or chromosomes that do not fit the typical definition of male or female (although many inters*x people are assigned male or female at birth).

❄️ Light Purple Box with dark border:
These definitions are commonly accepted but not absolute.
Some of these terms have some overlap. That’s okay! Just describe yourself with whatever terms you’re comfortable with, and respect the terms other people use for themselves.
There are so many more identities, orientations, expressions, and definitions that aren’t shown here. Ask your teacher for more resources or visit the link in the QR Code if you have questions!
