20119411 Seminar 

Lise Meitner war nicht die einzige: Leben und Forschung von Physikerinnen gestern und heute

(Martina Erlemann)

Lise Meitner und Marie Curie zählen wohl zu den berühmtesten historischen Frauenfiguren in der Geschichte der Physik, die auch über die Fachgrenzen hinaus sehr bekannt geworden sind. Aber es gibt noch viele weitere Physikerinnen, die ebenfalls wichtige Beiträge zur Weiterentwicklung der Physik geleistet haben. Im Seminar wollen wir, neben Lise Meitner und Marie Curie, Biographien dieser etwas weniger bekannten Physikerinnen erarbeiten. Dabei soll es nicht nur um die Lebensgeschichte dieser Frauen gehen, sondern ebenso um ihre Bedeutung für die physikalische Forschung.

Date: Mon, 4pm - 8pm. More here.

Begin: 25.10.2021. Die erste Sitzung wird online stattfinden.

Physics and Society

(Martina Erlemann)

Physics is in many respects related to society: New findings of physical research are communicated in the media to an interested public. Citizens can participate in political decision-making e.g. on the risks of nanomaterials in consumer products or on the question how to find permanent disposals for nuclear waste. Citizen Science projects enable non-scientists to participate in research, e.g. in astrophysics. All these developments raise questions: Which images of science are conveyed to the public? Should scientists exert more influence on how physics is presented in the media? Should citizens have more say in scientific research, e.g. on the funding of research? How much should the public know about physics or science in general? Should scientists be responsible for the potential consequences of their research? These questions will be discussed in the seminar by means of studies from sociology of science that deal with these topics.

Date: Wed, 2pm - 4pm. More here.

Begin: 20.10.2021. The first seminar session will be held online.

Gender and Science: An Introduction

(Martina Erlemann)

What does gender have to do with natural sciences such as physics? When closely analysing 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.

Date: Tue, 2pm - 6pm. More here.

Begin: 19.10.2021. The first session will be held online.

Research Seminar on Gender and Science Studies of Physics 

(Martina Erlemann)

In the research seminar, we will discuss current topics from Gender and Science Studies on physics. Participants are invited to present and discuss their research papers or projects as work-in-progress and to bring in individual research interests and topics. In the first unit we will decide jointly on themes and topics to be discussed.

Write an email for registration.

Date: Mon, 4pm - 8pm. More here.
