Reading the Past

Understanding the past often leads us to interpret why and how the present has evolved. This series will explore the historical underpinnings that have shaped the various facets of the modern world.

Nature and Cultures of Science: A Feminist Take (poster)

Abstract: This talk is an attempt to popularise the field of science studies, particularly feminist science studies. It aims to introduce the audience to a few necessary methodological principles that are important in bringing about a collaboration between natural and social scientists. As a feminist sociologist, I use an intersectional lens to critically examine modern western science. I argue that it is constructed and practiced in deeply gendered ways. I also submit that the scientific imagination needs to be overhauled so that it leads to a more plural and just discourse in and around science.
