Faculty of Sciences, University of Geneva
Tomas Brage will deliver a series of interventions “What does gender have to do with sciences?” addressed to members of the Sciences Faculty and companies the 26-27th of February 2018.
What does gender have to do with sciences?
Natural sciences and specially Physics are often perceived as an objective science and scientists believe they are surrounded by a “culture without culture”. At the same time, class and board rooms are dominated by men. This is a clear paradox that should awaken the curiosity of anyone. Tomas Brage will combine studies from psychology and anthropology with personal experiences as a professor of physics to explain gender biases and how to deal with them.
Tomas Brage is a Professor of Physics at Lund University, Sweden. He is a member of the workgroup for Gender of the Leading European Research Universities network (LERU), of the Gender STE COST network and of the GENERA Horizon 2020 project.
