Description

CeASR/ Psychology Seminar- Debating sex differences in cognition: we can do better

Guest Speaker- Dr Tom Stafford, Senior Lecturer in Psychology and Cognitive Science, University of Sheffield

http://tomstafford.staff.shef.ac.uk/

This year, in a fit of enthusiasm, I decided to teach a MSc seminar course around Cordelia Fine's "Delusions of Gender: The Real Science of Sex Differences". This plunged me into the literature on the sex differences in cognition and behaviour, a literature which draws on everything from evolutionary psychology and developmental neuroendoctrinology to critical theory and sociology. In this talk I will discuss the intellectual and pedagogic challenges of teaching a controversial and emotive topic. I will try and sum up with some lessons I've learnt about how we can raise our game when debating, and teaching, the topic of sex differences in cognition.

All welcome

Refreshments will be provided
