A Critical Moment: Sex/Gender Research at the Intersection of Culture, Brain, & Behavior

If I had any more conference funding left then I’d be going to this. The early bird post-doc rate is admirably cheap:

A Critical Moment: Sex/Gender Research at the Intersection of Culture, Brain, & Behavior

October 23-24, 2015  – Early Registration is Now Open

UCLA, Los Angeles, California




Confirmed Keynote Speaker is Dr. Anne Fausto-Sterling, Nancy Duke Lewis Professor Emerita of Biology and Gender Studies, Brown University, and author of the pioneering books, Sex/Gender: Biology in a Social World (2012) and Sexing the Body: Gender Politics and the Construction of Sexuality (2000). 

Foundational Talks will place sex and gender within larger historical (Sarah Richardson, Harvard University), biological (Art Arnold, UCLA), and cultural (Gilbert Herdt, California Institute for Integral Studies) contexts, highlighted by a vibrant panel discussion with these speakers and Alice Wexler, UCLA.
