Has Feminism Changed Science?
General Catalog Course Title:
Has Feminism Changed Science?
Terms Offered:
Spring 2014

In this seminar, we will consider the question, "has feminism changed science?" from two perspectives: first, we will try to take the question at face value and review several fields of science, ranging from anthropology/archaeology to physics, and see if, and in what ways, the practice of the field have been influced by feminist critiques of science and feminist issues; second, we will approach this question as an example of the anthropology or social studies of science and technology. Thus, students will get a sense both of how anthropologists study science and scientific practices, as well as what changes and influences the feminist critiques of science have had on some specific disciplines.
