Mattsson, Tina – Gender and Education, 2015

Consider that the stationary object outside the train is a man standing on the stationary floor watching a woman moving on a train. The woman on a train will see…

Durst, Sarah – Written Communication, 2019
Too frequently, representations of disciplinary writing foreground static notions of knowledge creation and literate practice in science and engineering.

Jones, Claire G. – History of Education, 2017
In the years around 1900, more women were benefiting from a university education and using it as a pathway to acquiring research expertise and contributing to the development of scientific knowledge. Although numbers were small compared with men, it is clear that the idea of a female researcher was no longer an oddity. As illustrated by…

An examination of the professional lives of women science teachers presents an opportunity to consider ways in which women became "knowledge purveyors" and to reflect on the extent to which they challenged contemporary boundaries about what science women should know. An analysis of the life of a woman science teacher who was also a…

Falconer, Heather M. – Written Communication, 2019
Negotiating membership within a disciplinary community is as much an exercise in rhetorical facility as it is content expertise. Where individuals reside in the hierarchy of membership is determined by not only what they talk and write about, but how. Yet, there are many factors that can impact newcomers' acculturation into a disciplinary…

Wentworth, Sandra – Science and Children, 2014
In this article, Sandra Wentworth invites science teachers to ask a group of students to write the names of three famous scientists on a piece of paper within one minute. Chances are that most students will mention Einstein and be unable to name another scientist, specifically a woman, except for an occasional Marie Curie response. This article…
