UCL Women’s Liberation SIG Autumn Term 2022 – Katie Alcock

By UCL Women's Liberation, on 20 September 2022

Children’s Understanding of Sex and Gender

Dr Katie Alcock

Children of preschool and early primary age often have poor understanding of logic and this extends to concepts of sex and gender, and often leads to younger children displaying more stereotyped preferences and behaviour than older children. I will discuss the literature on this aspect of development including how this applies to children with autism and what other influences may affect this.

UCL Women’s Liberation are delighted to welcome Dr Katie Alcock.
Dr Katie Alcock is a Senior Lecturer at Lancaster University in Developmental Psychology, specialising in typical and atypical language and cognitive development. She is particularly interested in what makes children different from each other, including language, culture, health, and developmental conditions.
Date: Tuesday 29th November 2022, in person SIG Seminar 13.00-14.00 GMT (Room C3.09IOe 20 Bedford Way)
