CORE 002 SC - Gender, Science and Knowledge


This course examines how cultural values have historically shaped and continue to shape scientific inquiry, practice, and knowledge production, focusing specifically on gender. We will consider questions such as: What constitutes scientific knowledge, and how is that related to who gets to be a scientist? What barriers have women faced in entering the scientific community? What might feminist science look like, and what does it mean to be a feminist scientist? How might science education be changed to be more inclusive? To address these topics, we will read critical analyses of science, perspectives of working scientists, and proposals for change.
