Gender: A Dialogue Between the Sciences and Humanities

Saturday, April 25, 2015
9:30 AM - 1 PM
Sulzberger Parlor, 3rd Floor Barnard Hall

Ideas about gender have changed in complex ways in the 125 years since Barnard was founded. How have the natural sciences and humanities each contributed to these transformations? How have scientific and humanistic ways of thinking interacted to produce innovative, critical, and potentially transformative knowledge about the nature and meaning of human difference? What does this history suggest about the potential for future collaborations across the disciplines? What are implications for the future of a women’s liberal arts college like Barnard? Panelists include Frances Champagne, Columbia; Evelynn Hammonds, Harvard; Gloria Origgi, the French National Center for Scientific Research; Rosalind Rosenberg, Barnard; Banu Subramaniam, U. Mass. Amherst; Rebecca Jordan Young, Barnard.
