March 8 – Discussion with Dr. Anne Fausto-Sterling
Join us for an informal discussion with Dr. Anne Fausto-Sterling…
Thursday, March 8 at 10am in the 1965 Room
Dr. Anne Fausto-Sterling is a leading expert on the development of sexual identity as well as the biology of gender. Her latest research analyzes the emergence of behavioral differences between the sexes in early childhood. Using a groundbreaking new approach to understanding gender differences, Dr. Anne Fausto-Sterling is shifting old assumptions about how humans develop particular traits. Dynamic systems theory permits one to understand how cultural difference becomes bodily difference. By applying a dynamic systems approach to the study of human development, Dr. Fausto-Sterling’s work exposes the flawed premise of the nature versus nurture debate.
During this informal discussion, Dr. Fausto-Sterling will provide a brief overview of her studies, and allow the attendees to ask questions. Bring your coffee, and enjoy the discussion.
