Visualizing the Complexity of Sex Determination, with Amanda Montañez
A new installment of the “Sex and Gender in Biomedical Research” webinar series, will take place on Wednesday, November 16th, at 15h (CEST). The title of this webinar is “Visualizing the Complexity of Sex Determination”.
The speaker, Amanda Montañez, describes her session as follows:
At Scientific American, we communicate the latest and most important information about science, health, technology, the environment, and society to the public. We often use information graphics to help illuminate complex ideas that are hard to explain fully through words alone. A few years ago, as part of a special issue on sex and gender, I led the development of a graphic on the spectrum of biological sex, a fascinating topic that I had not seen visualized before and turned out to be even more complex than I had imagined. In this talk I will explain the process of how the graphic was developed, what I learned, and how this project fits into my work as a graphics editor at Scientific American.
