Gender, Science, & the Undergraduate Curriculum. Building Two-Way Streets.
Musil, Caryn McTighe, Ed.
In the essays in this book interdisciplinary groups of scholars and teachers explore ways to integrate the feminist science studies scholarship into the teaching of basic science and how to insert more basic science into the teaching of women's studies. The essays of part 1, New Courses and New Intellectual Frameworks: Transforming Courses in Science and Women's Studies, are: (1) "Life, Sex, and Cells" (Sharon Kinsman); (2) "General Chemistry: Expanding the Goals beyond Content and Lab Skills" (Thomas J. Wenzel); (3) "Integrating Science into Gender and Women's Studies Programs" (Katrin Schultheiss); and (4) "Issues in Women's Health: An Interdisciplinary Experience" (Maria Tahamont, Virginia Brown, and Janet Moore Lindman). Part 2, Policy and Pedagogy, contains: (5) "Issues for Ethnic Minorities and Women in Science and Engineering" (Angela Ginorio and Marjorie Olmstead); (6) "The Curriculum in Context: Campus Networks and Change" (Donna M. Hughes, Karen Stein, Lisa Harlow, Lynne Derbyshire, Helen Mederer, Donna Bickford, Joan Peckham, Mercedes Rivero-Hudec, Bette Erickson, and Fay Boudreaux-Bartels); (7) "What Is Feminist Pedagogy? Useful Ideas for Teaching Chemistry" (Catherine Hurt Middlecamp and Banu Subramaniam); (8) "Gender and Science across the Curriculum: Students Respond" (Laura Briggs, Jennifer L Croissant, Marta Civil, and Sharla Fett); and (9) "Conclusion: Frequently Asked Questions about Feminist Science Studies." Appendixes list the schools participating in the project from which these essays are derived and members of the advisory board and present course syllabi. (Each chapter contains references and endnotes.) (SLD)
