Feminist research in engineering education: practice as an academic

The Research in Feminist Engineering research group is a group of diverse researchers who use feminist theory and methods to study engineering education. Our collective job is to think creatively about gender and engineering education, and to think about, write, and teach in ways that will result in a change in how engineering education is done. As a result, we have a variety of research projects that we work on, using research methods from applied anthropology, education, sociology, and women’s studies to better understand the context and practice of engineering education. Team PI Alice Pawley, assistant professor in the School of Engineering Education will speak about her research group’s work, as well as situate her academic practice as feminist in the context of her teaching and service.

This talk will be held Wednesday Nov 3, 4:30-5:30 in Wetherill Hall, rm 201.
