The Poetics and Politics of the First Collective Volume in the History of Women and Gender in Science
The talk examines the impact of "Uneasy Careers and Intimate Lives, Women and Science, 1789-1979," (Rutgers University Press, 1987) at its silver anniversary in 2012.
The talk inquires to what extent the mixed reputation of the genre of collective volumes may have obscured the innovative and subversive dimensions of Uneasy Careers. The talk also examines the role of timing (mid-1980s), known as the “me generation”, so different from the social mobilization of women in the 1970s. The talk concludes with a discussion of how historical scholarship on the under-representation of women in science in the present was affected by what happened in the 1980s.
Location: Liberman-Miller Lecture Hall, Women’s Studies Research Center, Epstein Building, Brandeis University
