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

Dr. Anne Fausto-Sterling

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.

Date: Thursday, March 8, 2012
Time:
10 a.m.
Location: 1965 Room, University Union

About Hank Thomas

Hank Thomas

Nineteen-year-old Hank Thomas joined the 1961 Congress of Racial Equality Freedom Ride at the last minute after his roommate John Moody dropped out with a bad case of the flu. “When folks ask me what incident led me to ride,” he said years later. “I can’t say it was one. When you grow up and face this humiliation every day, there is no one thing. You always felt that way.” Thomas overcame an impoverished childhood in southern Georgia and St. Augustine, FL to attend Howard University in Washington, D.C., where he was active in the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee affiliated Nonviolent Action Group.

This event is part of the a Black History Month series presented by the American Intercultural Center sponsored by supporters across campus. This particular speaker is funded in part by the Academic Staff Professional Development Fund.
