FemLab/FemPhys Philosophy Hangout

FemLab and FemPhys 2017_3_3_

On Friday, the Feminism and Science Research Group (FemLab) and FemPhys, the University of Waterloo club for women in Physics, had a great time discussing Sharon Crasnow’s article, “Feminist Philosophy of Science: Values and Objectivity,” and talking about the role of values and gender in physics. The conversation ranged from how values influence the relationship between theoretical and experimental physics, to equitable access for research funding and equipment, to the culture of research labs, to gendered communication styles. All of this good talk was nourished by pizza and washed down with beer. Angella Yamamoto did a great job working the FemPhys to organize this event. Keep an eye out for future Philosophy Hangouts!
