The Hidden World of Bisexuality, with Julia Shaw

Intelligence Squared

Bisexuality is the world’s largest sexual minority but is potentially the least understood. In her new book, Bi: The Hidden Culture, History, and Science of Bisexuality, psychological scientist Dr Julia Shaw sets out to answer the questions and eliminate common misconceptions around bisexuality. Discussing the history of the B in LGBTQ+ and the myth of the bi gene, Julia is joined in conversation by our host Sharan Dhaliwal, author of Burning My Roti: Breaking Barriers as a Queer Indian Woman. If you'd like to explore more of the topics raised in today's discussion, check out Julia's own podcast, Bi People, a four part series made with Sofie Hagen. Learn more about your ad choices.

It's the Two Bi Guys Season Four Finale and it's jam-packed with bi science, bi history, bi culture, bi politics, and of course bi puns! We are thrilled to be joined by Dr. Julia Shaw, psycholoical scientist at University College London, founder of the Bisexual Research Group, and author of multiple best-selling books -- including her new book "Bi: The Hidden Culture, History, and Science of Bisexuality", coming out June 28 in the US! We chatted about Dr. Shaw's bi identity and how a lack of research about bisexuality led to her exploring on her own and coming out, why bisexual people frequently "want more" (and deserve more!), the privilege of being in a place and position where coming out is safe (and the responsibility that comes with it), why psychological research has often marginalized fluid sexuality and why the field of "positive psychology" offers new promise, how traditional evolutionary theory comes up short in its explanation of queerness and why multi-spectrum attraction is not only natural but likely evolutionarily advantageous, the deep and often-invisible cultural bias toward heterosexuality that most of us grew up with, how positive Bi+ & queer representation in media can contribute to meaningful, real-world political change, Dr. Shaw's six stages of "bidentity" development (spoiler: it begins with loneliness but ends with peace!), and the importance of Bi+ spaces and BI PRIDE!

Julia Shaw on memories that aren't true

The Life Scientific

Early in her career, Julia wanted to know if it was possible to get someone to believe they committed a crime (when they hadn’t)? In a bold experiment she showed how students created false memories of criminal events in their teenage years, describing in rich detail how they had assaulted people, when no such events had taken place. What does this mean for a criminal justice system that relies heavily on memory-based evidence? Does it make it more difficult for the victims of crimes to have their voices heard? Victims of sex crimes, in particular. Or can the findings of false memory research be used to prevent miscarriages of justice? Julia talks to Jim Al-Khalili about growing up with her dad’s delusional beliefs and paranoid thoughts and how a profound appreciation that everyone’s reality is different pulled her to the field of false memory research. Producer: Anna Buckley

210 - Julia Shaw - The Memory Illusion (rebroadcast)

You Are Not So Smart

Our guest on this episode is Dr. Julia Shaw, the author of The Memory Illusion. Julia is famous among psychologists because she was able to implant false memories into a group of subjects and convince 70 percent of them that they were guilty of a crime they did not commit, and she did so by using the sort of sloppy interrogation techniques that some police departments have been truly been guilty of using in the past. From her book’s website: “In The Memory Illusion, Dr Julia Shaw uses the latest research to show the astonishing variety of ways in which our memory can indeed be led astray. Fascinating and unnerving in equal measure, the international bestseller The Memory Illusion has been translated into 20 languages and offers a unique insight into the human brain, challenging you to question how much you can ever truly know about yourself.”Patreon: http://patreon.com/youarenotsosmart

Dr. Julia Shaw ist eine bekannte Kriminalspychologin und Erinnerungsforscherin. Sie lert am University College London in London und hat bereits einige TV Formate mit ihren Forschungen inspiriert, nebenbei hostet sie auch ihren eigenen Podcast „Bad People“ und hält auf der ganzen Welt Ted Talks. 2015 veröffentlichte sie eine Studie, in der 70% der Probanden zugaben ein Verbrechen begangen zu haben, an das sie sich bildlich erinnern konnten, obwohl dies in Wirklichkeit nie stattgefunden hatte. Laut Julia, sind alle Erinnerungen nie hundertprozentig richtig und außerdem auch manipulierbar. Manche können sogar neu erstellt werden. Warum das so ist, was das alles auch mit Befragungen bei der Polizei und sein eigenes Ich zu tun hat und wie Erinnerungen funktionieren, darüber, hat sie auch ein Buch geschrieben. Danach folgte bald das zweite Buch über: das Böse. Was bedeutet es Böse zu sein und gibt es es Böse überhaupt? Aktuell beschäftigt sie sich mit dem Thema das Bisexualität. Ganz schön viele Themen, finden wir.  Produziert vom Asta der Filmakademie Baden-Württemberg Idee & Konzeption: Fabienne Sailer, Joscha Bongard, Paul HartmannDesign: Julia Schneider  Musik: Jonas Vogler Zu Julia: https://www.drjuliashaw.de https://www.bisexualresearch.com/researchers Zu uns: https://www.instagram.com/impuls.raum/ https://www.instagram.com/fabienne.jasz/
