At the 2015 ASA Conference in Chicago, the ASA Section Ethnomethodology & Conversation Analysis organised a Thematic Session related to Harold Garfinkel’s famous paper on the “Passing and the managed achievement of sex status in an intersexed person”; the paper was published in Garfinkel’s (1967) Studies in Ethnomethodology.
