There is growing awareness that a scientist's gender can have an impact on a career in physics, even though it should have no influence. This applies also for ethnicity or national background, social background, and other social characteristics. In the seminar you will learn about research that addresses issues of gender and diversity in physics and related fields. We will discuss research on the cultures of physics, on knowledge making practices in physics and on epistemological issues in science.
The seminar is linked to a lecture series where international researchers in the field of Gender & Diversity Studies in Science will give a talk on their research. There will be the opportunity to attend these lectures and discuss the talks in the seminar.
It is not obligatory but recommended to have attended either the introductory courses on Gender & Science, the seminar on Physics & Society or any other course on Gender & Science.
Interested students of all disciplines are welcome to attend.
