This course highlights the gendered packaging of science and technology and how this has affected the built environment, consumer choices, and the lives of women and men. Topics include an historical review of the role women have played in the development of science, investigation of the reasons for the traditionally low participation of women in scientific and technical fields, and an exploration of the relationship between science and gender.
This course is equivalent to WMST 140. Duplicate credit will not be granted for this course and WMST 140.
Completion of WGST 100 or WGST 111 is recommended.
