Chair of Science, Technology and Gender Studies @ FAU

A quick look at everyday news proves that science, technology, and medicine permeate all aspects of our everyday life. From the terrifying prospect of a nuclear conflict and the recent pandemic to mundane decisions about getting another x-ray or using a bike to go to work, one is confronted with complex technological systems and advanced scientific knowledge.

The chair of Science, Technology and Gender Studies provides highly interdisciplinary tools that help us comprehend the impact of science, technology and medicine to humans and the environment. Major areas of research and education include gender science studies, nuclear history, and science diplomacy.

Current Courses held by the chair at the FAU can be found under Teaching.
