Howard, Melinda A.; Kern, Anne L. – Cultural Studies of Science Education, 2019
The purpose of this forum paper is to address how conceptions of "success" in STEM education are culturally informed, and how supporting students in achieving success goes beyond normative definitions of academic achievement. Furthermore, the imposition of success from the dominant culture may be limited in scope with culturally diverse…

Wallace, Maria F. G. – Cultural Studies of Science Education, 2019
Over the past decade, neoliberal practices for ensuring teacher effectiveness have shaped the landscape of education. In the midst of policy mandates for highly effective teachers, a biopolitical movement also undergirds the desire for a particular kind of ideal classroom. Grounded in traditions of scientism, beginning science teachers and their…

Kohut, Michael – Cultural Studies of Science Education, 2019
Recommendations for teaching the nature of science (NOS) are grounded in a deficit view of students and/or the public--wherein people accept pseudoscientific claims, particularly about evolution, because they do not adequately understand what counts as being "scientific." Under the deficit view, correct views of science are defined by…

Gallard Martínez, Alejandro J.; Pitts, Wesley; Ramos de Robles, Silvia Lizette; Milton Brkich, Katie L.; Flores Bustos, Belinda; Claeys, Lorena – Cultural Studies of Science Education, 2019
This paper introduces the concept of contextual mitigating factors (CMFs) as a theoretical construct to help understand how Latinas who demonstrated success in STEM pipelines navigated the fluidly and dynamically shifting socio-historical-political contexts in which they found themselves. Further, understanding the ways in which CMFs contribute to…

Research has shown that African American girls are interested in science but not as likely to pursue science-related careers as their white or male peers. Although out of school time (OST) science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) programs have been presented as means to address this discrepancy and support scientific identity development…

Malmberg, Claes; Urbas, Anders – Cultural Studies of Science Education, 2019
According to previous research, in contemporary western societies health is seen as an increasingly non-political issue. Rather than being at the centre of collective decision-making and democratic politics, health is regarded as resting on individual responsibility. In this study we focus on, and explore an important and challenging…

This paper sets forth the idea that a critical aspect of the socialization process of Mexican communities is to maintain and carry-out traditional knowledge passed down from generations of indigenous ancestors. The relationship between Mexican communities and the land creates a window through which we can see how traditional indigenous knowledge…
