What does gender have to do with natural sciences such as physics? When closely analyzing the histories, cultures, practices, and contents of the natural sciences, it becomes visible that gender and other social inequalities have an impact on the physical as well as on other natural sciences: from the underrepresentation of women in some sciences to gender differences in career outcomes up to gendered constructions in scientific theories, gender is relevant in various contexts of science.The course introduces to approaches, concepts, and methods of Gender Studies for the natural sciences, putting a special focus on the physical sciences.

The seminar is aimed at students of physics and other natural sciences. Interested students of the humanities and social sciences are also welcome.
