What does gender have to do with natural sciences such as physics? When closely analysing the histories, cultures, practices and contents of the natural sciences, it becomes visible that gender and other social inequalities have an impact on the physical as well as on other natural sciences: from the underrepresentation of women in some sciences to gender differences in career outcomes up to gendered constructions in scientific theories, gender is relevant in various contexts of science. The course introduces to approaches, concepts and methods of Gender Studies for the natural sciences, putting a special focus on the physical sciences. The seminar is aimed at students of physics and other natural sciences. Interested students of the humanities and social sciences are also welcome.
The course is also open for students of the Doctoral Program Natural Sciences and can partly be attended asynchronously. It is possible to earn credit points for the Compulsory Component on Diversity (min. 1 CP for regular attendance).
