Chair of Science, Technology and Gender Studies @ FAU

Who we are

Being highly interdisciplinary, the chair of Science, Technology, and Gender Studies (STGS) is unique within the German academic system. We analyze the relationship among scientific knowledge, technological systems, and society, addressing the most important challenges of the contemporary world through a critical and gender perspective. We think across the traditional divide between the social sciences and humanities on one side and the natural sciences and engineering on the other. Given FAU’s strong connections to high-tech industries and involvement in innovative engineering projects that affect our everyday lives, the chair offers a chance for a critical participation in the making of technoscience and builds its research and educational projects on shared, interdisciplinary interests.

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