Lederman, Muriel, Bartsch, Ingrid


The Gender and Science Reader brings together key writings by leading scholars to provide a comprehensive feminist analysis of the nature and practice of science. Challenging the self-proclaimed objectivity of scientific practice, the contributors uncover the gender, class and racial prejudices of modern science. The Reader draws from a range of media, including feminist criticism, scientific literature, writings about scientific education, and the popular press. Articles are grouped into six thematic sections which address:* Women in Science - women's access to study and employment in science, combining both analytical evidence and personal testimonies* Creating Andocentric Science - exploring the gendered origins of science at the time of the Enlightenment* Analyzing Gendered Science - feminist methodologies and epistemology for the study of science* Gendered Praxis - examples of how gender bias can affect and distort scientific work* Science and Identity - how science reinforces gender and racial stereotypes* Feminist Re-Structuring of Science - what is the future of feminist science studies?In addition to a general introduction by the editors to the volume, and introductions to each of the thematic sections, the Reader also includes a comprehensive bibliography of feminist science studies, making it an indispensible resource for anyone involved in the teaching, research or study of science.Lederman, Muriel is the author of 'Gender and Science Reader', published 2000 under ISBN 9780415213585 and ISBN 0415213584.
