ScienceOnline2012 has ended
ScienceOnline2012 – #scio12 across social media – is the sixth annual international meeting on science and the Web.
Thursday, January 19 • 2:45pm - 3:45pm
Sex, gender and controversy: writing to educate, writing to titillate

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Everyone loves a duck penis (seriously! everyone!), but do audiences drawn to sexy topics actually learn about science? How can we blog these issues in a way that's more than just titillating? How can we use research on reproduction, sexuality and gender, and sexism and bias to promote interest in wider aspects of science? How much does the identity of the blogger matter? The identity of the audience? Join us for discussions of gender, sex, blogging, and... humping rats.
