Nothing neurotrash about our new theatre

Monday 25th February 2019

We are thrilled to announce the very first public event to take place in the theatre at our new Science Oxford Centre, which opens later this year.

Science Oxford Theatre

Debunker of sexist stereotypes and outspoken neuroscientist Gina Rippon will take to the stage in the 120-seater auditorium on May 13th to explore the battle of the brains in The Gendered Brain. Are male and female brains different or do we have more in common than we like to admit?  Rippon thinks that so called neurotrash has become deep-rooted in our culture, from children’s toys to career choices and, she claims, is limiting social progress. Our inaugural audience will decide for themselves as she explains the evolution of the myth of the gendered brain and explores how such beliefs still impact on society today.

The 21st century is not just challenging the old answers – it is challenging the question itself. The Guardian, February 2019

Gina, an international researcher in the field of cognitive neuroscience, will be armed with cutting-edge neuroscience and gender gap facts and promises to liberate our minds…

Although the Science Oxford Centre, which is at Stansfeld Park in Headington, won’t be fully open until September this year, we’re keen to show off the new theatre and hope that it’ll become a great resource for not just our events but those of the local community too.

Book your tickets here and be one of the very first to experience the new Science Oxford Centre Theatre!
