Professor Londa Schiebinger
Londa Schiebinger is the John L. Hinds Professor of History of Science at Stanford University and Director or Stanford's Clayman Institute for Gender Research. Over the past twenty years, Schiebinger's work has been devoted to teasing apart three analytically distinct but interlocking pieces of the gender and science puzzle: the history of women's participation in science; the structure of scientific institutions; and the gendering of human knowledge. Her current work explores "gendered innovations." Gendered innovations refers to transformations in the personnel, cultures, and content of science and engineering brought about through gender analysis. Gender analysis, when applied rigorously and creatively, has the potential to enhance science and engineering by sparking new perspectives, new questions, and new missions. Her new volume is Gendered Innovations in Science and Engineering (Stanford University Press, 2008).
The ADVANCE 2013 Gender and STEM Research Symposium was held on November 13-14th. Proceedings from this symposium are available through Purdue e-Pubs.
