For the fifth annual Andrew Carnegie Lecture, we are delighted to welcome Cordelia Fine to the University of Glasgow. The Andrew Carnegie Lecture Series, funded by the Carnegie Corporation of New York, aims to bring some of the world's most important thinkers to Scotland to engage with local audiences in a vibrant exchange of knowledge and ideas in the arts, sciences, education and international affairs.

Cordelia Fine will deliver a lecture titled: ‘Science, Gender & Equality'. 

Trained in psychology, Cordelia Fine is a professor in the History and Philosophy of Science program in the School of Historical and Philosophical Studies at the University of Melbourne. Cordelia is also an internationally acclaimed writer, and a recipient of the 2018 Edinburgh Medal, a prestigious award that recognises scientists who have excelled in their field and have contributed significantly to our understanding and wellbeing of society.  She received the award for her work in challenging gender bias in science and for her contributions to public debates about gender equality. 

Professor Fine's second book, Delusions of Gender, was shortlisted for the Victorian Premier’s Literary Award for Non-Fiction, the Best Book of Ideas 2011, the John Llewellyn Rhys Prize and the biannual cross-genre Warwick Prize 2013.  It was also a Guardian and London Evening Standard Book of the Year, a Washington Post Best Non-Fiction Book of the Year, and listed in “10 books by women that will change your life” (Sunday Times), “22 books women think men should read” (Huffington Post), “Top 10 books on women in the past 30 years” (The Australian) and “40 new feminist classics” (Literary Classics). 

Cordelia's latest book, Testosterone Rex: Unmaking the myths of our gendered minds, won the Royal Society Insight Investment Science Book Prize 2017.

It promises to be a special evening, in the best tradition of the annual Carnegie Lecture series
