Sexing the Brain

in AUSTRALIA, 29/06/2012

Is gender a given or a social construct, a matter of nature or nurture? And how is science understanding and influencing sexual politics? The first in a series of presentations on this topic features neuroscientist Lesley Rogers and ethologist Gisela Kaplan (both professors at the University of New England, Armidale).

Rogers’ books include Sexing the Brain, a critique of biological reductionism, and Kaplan’s include The Meagre Harvest, a history of the Australian Women’s Movement.
