Wiseman, Dawn; Herrmann, Randy – Cultural Studies of Science Education, 2019
This contribution engages in conversation with McMahon, Griese, and Kenyon (this issue) to consider how the SURE program they describe represents a pragmatic approach to addressing the issue of underrepresentation of Indigenous people in STEM post-secondary programs. We explore how such programs are generally positioned and how they might be…

Rodéhn, Cecilia – Cultural Studies of Science Education, 2019
This forum article discusses learning and teaching in Science Centres in relation to gender. The starting point of this discussion is Eva Silfver's paper "Gender performance in and out-of-school science contexts." In response to this article I discuss the discourse of gender in research on Science Centres and museums. Moreover, the text…

Silfver, Eva – Cultural Studies of Science Education, 2019
This article examines how school students perform gender during a visit to a science centre where they programme Lego cars. The focus is on how students relate to each other--how they talk and what they do. Theoretically, the article draws on the 'heterosexual matrix' and a Foucauldian understanding of how power and knowledge are tightly…

Wooten, Michelle M. – Cultural Studies of Science Education, 2019
Research on science teaching and learning commonly makes use of reductionism to specify conditions of science learning. In my studies of academics'-of-science-teaching-&-learning (academics'"-of-st&l") research practices and values, I discuss how philosophic inquiry shifted my research practices from reductionism to critical (or,…

Marker, Michael – Cultural Studies of Science Education, 2019
While some Indigenous individuals have achieved "success" in STEM careers, persistent questions from many Indigenous scholars and communities about epistemic dominance at universities remain. Going beyond student achievement, this essay regards the centering of local Indigenous place based knowledge as a paradigm shifting move for…

Kayumova, Shakhnoza; McGuire, Chad J.; Cardello, Suzanne – Cultural Studies of Science Education, 2019
In this conceptual paper, we draw upon the insights of Feminist Science Studies, in particular Karen Barad's concept of agential realism, as a critical analytical tool to re-think nature and culture binaries in dominant science knowledge-making practices and explanatory accounts, and their possible implications for science education in the context…

Kloser, Matthew; Wilsey, Matthew; Hopkins, Dawn W.; Dallavis, Julie W.; Lavin, Erin; Comuniello, Michael – Cultural Studies of Science Education, 2018
In the last decade, STEM-focused schools have opened their doors nationally in the hope of meeting students' contemporary educational needs. Despite the growth of these STEM-focused institutions, minimal research exists that follows how schools make a transition toward a STEM focus and what organizational structures are most conducive to a…

Hansson, Sven Ove – Cultural Studies of Science Education, 2018
The "multiculturalist" and "universalist" approaches to science education both fail to recognize the strong continuities between modern science and its forerunners in traditional societies. Various fact-finding practices in indigenous cultures exhibit the hallmarks of scientific investigations, such as collectively achieved…

Lundqvist, Eva; Sund, Per – Cultural Studies of Science Education, 2018
There is an ongoing discussion about what content that should be taught in science education and there are different views among teachers about what represent good science content. However, teachers are not isolated individuals making their own interpretations, but are part of institutionalised systems building on patterns in the selection of…

Rahmawati, Yuli; Taylor, Peter Charles – Cultural Studies of Science Education, 2018
"The fish becomes aware of the water in which it swims" is a metaphor that represents Yuli's revelatory journey about the hidden power of culture in her personal identity and professional teaching practice. While engaging in a critical auto/ethnographic inquiry into her lived experience as a science teacher in Indonesian and Australian…
