What role does gender play in scientific research and the development of technologies?

This book provides methodological expertise, research experiences and empirical findings in the dynamic field of Science and Technology Studies.

Topics range from the design of information and communication technologies, epistemologies of biology and chemistry to teaching mathematics and professional processes in engineering.

Contributions by Anne Balsamo, Wendy Faulkner, Rebecca Jordan-Young, Barbara Orland, Els Rommes, and others.
