5th Jülich Lecture: Gendered Innovations in Science, Medicine, and Engineering

Prof. Dr. Londa Schiebinger
John L. Hinds Professor of History of Science, Stanford University
Director, EU/US Gendered Innovations in Science, Medicine, and Engineering Project

This talk identifies three major approaches to gender in science:
1) efforts to increase the number of women;
2) programs to remove bias and barriers from the institutions of science;
3) sex and gender analysis to create new knowledge.

The talk, which was given at Forschungszentrum Jülich as part of the Jülich Lectures series, treats each approach, but focus on introducing the EU/US Gendered Innovations project. This project——develops state-of-the-art "Methods of Sex and Gender Analysis" for basic and applied research in science, medicine, and engineering. From the start, sex and gender analyses act as additional "controls" (or filters for bias) to provide excellence in science, medicine, and engineering research, policy, and practice.

Duration: 43 min.
