Keynote Talk by Professor Janet Kourany (University of Notre Dame, feminist philosopher of science)
“But What Happens When the Scientists Are Women?”

When it comes to the issue of women as scientists, the persistent concern has been that the science will be less sound if women are allowed to conduct it because women are not as analytically gifted as men. Kourany challenges us to move beyond this assumption in a variety of ways. First, there has been a pattern of achievement by women entering the sciences, revolutionizing their fields as well as uncovering the biases. Yet Kourany also points to the complexity of women’s participation. Not only were there (and still are) women scientists who conduct research in the same old ways, but there are also male scientists who are on board for change.

Luncheon panel by Sarah Gervais and her research group
“Applying Gender to Psychology Research: Helping Students Create New Knowledge”

In this roundtable discussion, a panel of students will describe their experiences working with Professor Sarah Gervais’ research team, which applies gender analysis to psychology research. They will begin by sharing details about their individual projects, which include such topics as objectification, obesity stigma, and self-sexualization. The roundtable will then proceed to an informal Q & A, in which audience members can participate. In this open conversation, students may discuss things like: how they like this research, their most interesting discoveries, how they first got involved with the project, and the opportunities and challenges that come from research.
