The first theme of study will focus on emblematic female scientists of the 19th and 20th centuries. Papers may concentrate on historical, social or political analysis of how, why and when women "infiltrated" the scientific world and (re-)appropriated scientific discourse at differenct moments in History; papers may also focus on press representations of such women or reactions within the scientific community.
The second theme of study will be devoted to fictional representations: how does the popular culture construct and vehicle images of women of science? What impact did the feminist movements of the 70s have on how women of science are seen or how they see themselves in relation to the sciences? Papers which include studies of televsion, films and pulp fiction will be welcomed.
Keynote speaker: Joan Slonczewski, professor of microbiology at Kenyon college (Ohio) and author of 6 science fiction novels.
