GSC 2206 - Women in Science: From Antiquity into the Next Millennium

Credits: 4
A study of the contributions and experiences of women in the traditionally male-dominated field of science. The course will include an introduction to the basic scientific principles underlying the subject areas studied by selected women scientists. The work of these women will also be explored as illustrations of holistic vs. reductionist approaches to science, the application of the scientific method and data evaluation, and the criteria used for “proof ” of an idea. Throughout the course, emphasis will be placed not only on the scientific achievements of women and their struggle for equality, but also on their advances in the context of their work of their contemporary male scientists.
