Science, Sex, and Gender

Learn from McGill scientists about gender’s many ragged edges:

  • Chemistry and gender
  • Sexual and natural selection
  • Gender and aggression
  • Genetics and sexual conflict

Mini-Science is a unique five-week public lecture series organized by the Faculty of Science. Be educated by some of the University’s top professors! The series starts with ‘Dr. Joe’ from the Office of Science and Society on chemistry, love, and gender, and concludes with Andrew Hendry’s talk about sexual and natural selection. No science background is required. There is no homework and no exam.

This Mini-Science series is made possible through the generous support of Dr. Lorne Trottier.
