Gina Rippon

June 13 - 16:30 - 18:30

Gina Rippon Talk

People have deep-rooted beliefs that our gender determines our skills and preferences - from toys and colors to career choices and pay. But what do these beliefs and gender-biases mean for our thoughts, decisions, and behaviors?

Experience the British neurobiologist and professor of cognitive neuroimaging, and author of the book “The Gendered Brain – The New Neuroscience that Shatters the Myth of the Female Brain”, Gina Rippon, June 13 at DTU – Technical University of Denmark.
Gina Rippon is an international researcher in the field of cognitive neuroscience based at the Aston Brain Centre at Aston University in Birmingham.
Her research involves the use of state-of-the-art brain imaging techniques to investigate development disorders such as autism.
She is also an advocate for initiatives to help overcome the under-representation of women in STEM-subjects. As part of a European Union Gender Equality Network, she has addressed conferences all over the world.
Based on her book Gina Rippon will give a lecture on the importance of life experiences and biology in brain development and make us wiser about whether biology determines, whether there is a difference between women and men neurobiologically speaking.
The Lecture will take place 13 June 2022 from 16:30 – 18:30 at DTU´s Oticon hall.
The lecture is held in english.
The lecture is supported by Carlsbergfondet, Poul Due Jensen Fond and via IDA crowdfunding.

Kom med til foredrag (på engelsk) med den britiske neurobiolog og professor i kognitiv neuroimaging, samt forfatter til bogen “The Gendered Brain – The New Neuroscience that Shatters the Myth of the Female Brain”, Gina Rippon

Barbie eller Lego? Aflæse kort eller aflæse følelser? Har du en mande- eller kvindehjerne?

Mennesker har dybt rodfæstede overbevisninger om, at vores køn bestemmer vores færdigheder og præferencer – fra legetøj og farver til karrierevalg og løn. Hvad betyder overbevisningerne for vores tanker, beslutninger og adfærd?

Det får vi svar på den 13. juni 2022, hvor vi har inviteret neurobiologen og forfatter Gina Rippon til Danmark.

I Oticonsalen på Danmarks Tekniske Universitet i Lyngby vil hun med udgangspunkt i bogen “Gendered Brain: The New Neuroscience that Shatters the Myth of the Female Brain” holde foredrag om betydningen af livserfaringer og biologi i hjernens udvikling og gøre os klogere på, om biologien overhovedet cementerer, hvorvidt der er forskel på kvinder og mænd.

Måske er vi slet ikke så forskellige set gennem neurobiologiske briller?

Det er muligt at deltage både fysisk og virtuelt.

Entré: 100 kroner. (Link til køb af almindelig billet HER)
Pris for studerende: 50 kroner.
