Current Research Projects
Leslie will act as guest editor of a special issue of Frontiers in Evolutionary Neuroscience focused on the cultural neurospsychology of sport. For more about forthcoming research publications, see Leslie's C.V.
Leslie's continuing work in Gender Studies carefully considers perspectives and findings from multiple disciplines - feminism, cultural studies, evolutionary studies, and affective neuroscience - to examine how each discipline can both inform and question assumptions embedded in the others, thereby generating new understandings.
