Sex Itself

Wednesday, 8 January 2014 | A Public Affair

What terms do we need to know to be able to have a conversation about gender and sex? What are the differences between the two? Find out more on this edition of A Public Affair!

On Wednesday January 8th, subbing for Tim Hansel, our host John Quinlan was joined by guest Sarah Richardson, author of “Sex Itself: The Search for Male and Female in the Human Genome.”

“Richardson shows how sexual science of the past continues to resonate, in ways both subtle and explicit, in contemporary research on the genetics of sex and gender. With the completion of the Human Genome Project, genes and chromosomes are moving to the center of the biology of sex.”- The University of Chicago Press Books
