Gender & STEM Network Conference 3. - 5. July 2014

genderDynamics-Symposium at "Gender and STEM: What schools, families, and workplaces can do?"  2nd Network Conference

The first conference in 2012 focused on individual gendered pathways towards (and away from) STEM fields. In 2014, we highlighted the roles of schools, families and workplaces for supporting or constraining girls/women and boys/men to choose and persist in STEM, versus other pathways.

At the 2nd conference the aim was to present empirical research and educational policies, concerning how individual and social aspects impact individuals’ motivation, attitudes, performance, educational and career choices and pathways into STEM fields. Complementary perspectives will address how such pathways can be facilitated at various points along students’ and young adults’ educational and occupational development.

Kick-Off-Conference 22. November 2012

Kick-off-Conference “genderDynamics. Professional Cultures and Research Organizations in Physics”

Keynote lectures:

Prof. Sharon Traweek (Los Angeles, UCLA):
The anthropologist and historian Sharon Traweek is Professor at the History and Gender Studies Department of the University of California in Los Angeles. Her ethnographic work on professional and gender cultures in high-energy physics in the USA and Japan were groundbreaking for Science and Technology Studies.

Prof. Beate Krais (Berlin, TU Darmstadt):
Until her retirement Beate Krais was a Professor for Sociology at the TU Darmstadt. She did pioneering works about gender relations and academic cultures; among others, she carried out the first broad study about the professional situation of female physicists in Germany.

On Friday, 23 November a Working Conference takes place. If you´re interested, you are welcome to participate.

Location: Free University Berlin, Berlin
