Cordelia Fine joins Samara this week to talk about the nuance of conducting sex difference research. She talks us through the history of sex difference based research, and what the dangers can be in either leaning too far into the supposed innateness of sex based action, or of dismissing it altogether. We learn how to constructively balance nature and nurture impacts in our studies, and of the prominent work being done in this field.
