  • Interview with Professor Londa Schiebinger - May 31, 2013

    Londa Schiebinger is the John L. Hinds Professor of History of Science in the History Department at Stanford University and Director of the EU/US Gendered Innovations in Science, Medicine, Engineering, and Environment Project. Over the past twenty years, Schiebinger's work has been devoted to teasing apart three analytically distinct but interlocking pieces of the gender and science puzzle: the history of women's participation in science; the structure of scientific institutions; and the gendering of human knowledge. This interview was conducted by KanaalZ news after she received an honorary doctorate from the University of Brussels. She was one of five women to have received the title.
