Perspectives on Women in Science

October 29, 7:00 PM

Free

One of the most distinctive developments in American science and engineering during the last 50 years isn’t any specific discovery or invention. Instead, this revolution involves something even more fundamental: re-envisioning ideas about who can and should become an engineer or scientist. This talk by Amy Sue Bix, Iowa State University, explores that transformation, reviewing the history of when, how, and why women gained access to U.S. science and engineering from the late 1800s onward. Today, gender and diversity issues make headline news, highlighting questions about who are encouraged to enter and work in STEM, why, and on what terms.

Sponsored by the Science, Technology, and Society Program.
