Gendered Innovations in Science and Engineering

April 15-16, 2005

Wallenberg Hall 450 Serra Mall, Bldg 160 Stanford University

Stanford University’s Institute for Research on Women and Gender is hosting an international conference on how the tools of gender analysis, when turned to science, medicine, and engineering, can profoundly alter human knowledge. This two-day conference will focus on specific ways in which gender analysis has brought spark and creativity to particular fields of science. Examples of the success of gender analysis come from fields, such as medicine, biology, and archaeology. It will be the goal of this conference to highlight and analyze these successes. Questions remain concerning whether gender analysis has anything to offer physics, mathematics, computer science, or chemistry-issues we will also address. The question is how can an understanding of how gender operates in science and engineering open new vistas for future research.

Co-sponsored by the National Science Foundation and the Provost Office Gabilan Fund Free and open to the public. No registration required.
