Brain images are increasingly important in scientific and public discourse of sex and difference. Feminist scholars from neuroscience, philosophy, and cultural & media studies discuss how sex/gender gets into brain images, and what we can (and can’t) get out of such images.

This event is free and open to the public.

Sponsored by the Center for Science and Society and the Department of Women’s, Gender & Sexuality Studies at Barnard College
