Joint event with the Pick Club: The Science of Sexual Orientation

Dr. Geruf Rieger

Friday, 20 May 2016

5.30pm - 7.00pm   |   The Parlour, Magdalene College

What are the biological and social underpinnings of sexual orientation? How can we study sexual orientation scientifically? Join us for a fascinating introduction to the science of sexual orientation!


Scientists and QLGBT students at Magdalene have joined forces and invited Dr. Gerulf Rieger (University of Essex) to talk about “the science of sexual orientation”. His work is highly interdisciplinary, and looks at how sexual orientation develops, how it is manifested, and how it affects a person’s life.

Dr. Rieger will give a talk titled, “Gender nonconformity and sexual arousal as windows into the nature of sexual orientation”. There will be plenty of time for discussion/Q&A afterwards, as well as drinks and nibbles. All welcome! Click here to see the poster for this event.

The speaker will also be joining the Friday night BA formal dinner in college. Magdalene grads are encouraged to book in. Not a Magdalene grad, but still want to come? Please email hs566 at cam dot ac dot uk, and we’ll try and sort something out 🙂
