Exploring the historical, philosophical, and social dimensions of phallometry and cervimetry, this session embodied the ISHPSSB ideal of integrative, dialogic, critical, cohesive, and convivial interdisciplinarity. Representing innovation in our pandemic moment of remote collaboration and presentation, the session set a new bar in the delivery of scholarly interdisciplinary presentations at ISHPSSB, featuring a pre-recorded presentation of a tightly integrated and highly structured dialogue among disciplinary approaches and historical case studies, centrally featuring the work of two junior researchers, interlaced with commentary by more senior scholars. This structure continued into the open live discussion period, with participants modeling and provoking constructive, lively, and inclusive interdisciplinary discussion.
