Event description

Description

The Centre for Law & Social Justice is pleased to welcome Professor Anne Fausto Sterling (Brown University) to deliver the Annual Lecture 2018.

‘Embodied Gender/Sex Identity: What is it and how does it form?’

In the lecture Professor Fausto Sterling, an internationally renowned gender theorist, will introduce the term Gender/Sex Identity arguing that Gender/Sex Identity is embodied and multidimensional . Further, this identity is a dynamic process rather than a fixed state, and it emerges from probabilistic processes rather than being predetermined by either Sex (nature) or Gender (nurture).

A wine reception follows the lecture.

All welcome, but registration in advance is required.

About the Speaker

Dr. Anne Fausto-Sterling is Brown University Professor Emerita and fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science. She is a leading expert in biology and gender development. Using a groundbreaking new approach to understanding gender differences, Dr. 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, her work exposes the flawed premise of the nature versus nurture debate.

All welcome, but registration in advance is required.
