From the Faculty Lounge: Biology and the Sexes

A conversation between Rebecca Jordan-Young and Alison Pischedda. Moderated by Provost Linda Bell
Monday, September 17, 2018
6:30 PM
Sulzberger Parlor, 3rd Floor Barnard Hall

Rebecca Jordan-Young, associate professor of women’s, gender, and sexuality studies, and Alison Pischedda, assistant professor of biology, come together for an intriguing conversation. Professor Pischedda's research focuses on sexual selection and sexual conflict in the common fruit fly, while Professor Jordan-Young looks into biological claims about gender and sexuality by examining how cultural assumptions are embedded in scientific research. The two professors will examine the interdependency between biology and culture that shapes how we understand sexuality and sexual attraction. Seating is limited. Please arrive early. Doors close at 6:30 PM.

This event is part of From the Faculty Lounge, a series of interdisciplinary conversations.
