The main aim of this Conference is to bridge the gap between what has been thought of as separate and decoupled fields of knowledge (Natural Sciences and STEM – Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics- and Social Sciences), and also to think about gender differences in Science(s) from an intersectional perspective.
There are multiple forms of inequality and discrimination in Academia. But, how are these experiences of difference addressed in terms of scientific knowledge production? Are we thinking in terms of inter-disciplinary understanding and action? What are we doing in our respective disciplines? How is this affecting the science we produce?
All these questions have informed this initiative and prompted us to go further in terms of common horizons and transformative action. By bringing STEM and Social Sciences together we intend to interrogate gender and Science from a comprehensive understanding of differences and diversity.
