Description

Londa Schiebinger is a leading international authority on gender and science. Her work has been devoted to teasing apart three 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. Currently, she is also exploring how gender analysis, when turned to science and technology, can spark creativity by opening new questions and fields for future research. She is the director of the US/EU Gendered Innovations in Science, Health & Medicine, Engineering and Environment project, and a former Guggenheim fellow. Schiebinger is also the author of numerous prize-winning books.
