Gender Research at the Department - AG Scheich

Prof. Dr. Elvira Scheich: History and Philosophy of Physics
with particular focus on Gender Studies

Science & gender studies addresses key questions about the relationship between science and society: How have experimental practices and theoretical paradigms of physics been developed in their historical context? What are the epistemic ideals underlying the transformations in science and which cultural differences come into play here? How do we account for the transfer of knowledge between physics and other disciplines, the realms of everyday life or the political public?
