In what ways do our ideas about science, what it is, how it works, and who does it, need to change in recognition of LGBTQ+ lives? The history of science in public is still often told as male, white, able-bodied, and heterosexual. This does not reflect reality as evidenced by expanding historical and sociological scholarship, which in recent years has begun to incorporate insights from trans studies and queer theory, creating frameworks and findings that matter for the broadest histories of science, technology, and medicine. In recognition of these exciting and important developments, and with the aim of directly bringing them to broader audiences, this lunchtime lecture invites you to engage with scholars currently exploring and integrating these questions.
