Looking at science and technology from a gender perspective

Lecture

In the open lecture by Helene Götschel, Professor of Hannover University of Applied Sciences and Arts (Germany) will deliver a talk on gender in science. After a short introduction to gender studies and the concept of gender, the main focus of the lecture will be the presentation of selected research findings on gender and STEM.

Finally, it will be answered why this knowledge can be helpful in trying to develop science and technology in the 21st century.

Gender Studies not only look at the situation of women in science and technology. They also analyze the social constructions and cultural representations of gender in STEM fields. Using methods and tools from the humanities and social science, gender studies look at communication in research labs, educational settings at universities, the behaviour of scientists at conferences, science textbooks and the representation of technology in the media.
