Gender, Knowledge, and Investigation

April 13th 2011

In the framework of the International Year of the Scientific Women, which coincides with the centenary of the Chemistry Nobel prize to Marie Curie -Marja Sklodowska-, and with the International Year of Chemistry, the main objective of this activity is the education and sensitization in the matter of gender, knowledge and investigation. To be clearer, from an interdisciplinary approach, we will present and debate different analysis about gender, science, university, and knowledge building, along with national and international policies for a favorable intervention on gender equality in this area. Furthermore, this activity is also aimed for the visibilization of researcher women in different branches of the ULL, and in other Canarian organizations of investigation, and to know the gender perspective in their field of work.
