WGS 250 Gender and STEM (Science, Tech, Engineering and Math)

This course examines how gender and gender identity-as well as race/ethnicity and sexual identity-intersect with STEM-related areas of inquiry. Using a variety of interdisciplinary perspectives, the course investigates how STEM fields both shape and are shaped by ideas about gender. Topics include feminist critiques of science, intersections of gender with technology design and use, gender and the built environment, and the relationship between gender and "doing" STEM work.
