Reclaiming a political voice: Women and Science in Central Europe
This publication is one of the outputs of the WS Debate project (FP6) and is a contribution to the discussions about the position of women in Czech science. The question of equal opportunities for men and women is presented not only through the traditional prism of the lack of human resources and the importance of women for the economic development of Europe but locates the issue within wider historical and social-economic circumstances.
Thinking Borders: Gender Examinations of Rationality, Objectivity and the Knowing Subject
This publication was inspired by papers presented at the international historical conference of Women Scholars and Institutions organized by the Research Centre for the History of Science and the Commission Women in Science of the International Union of History and Philosophy of Science.The National Contact Centre for Women and Science at the Institute of Sociology of the Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic chaired one of the conference sections called Gendered Knowledge: The Reshaping of ‘Normal’ Science. The publication is a result of a joint initiative of the panellists and organizers of the section.
In 2005 the first Spring School of Science Studies took place and inspired the publication of this edited volume. A close focus was on challenging the ideas of knowledge construction and doing science, on feminist science studies, actors network theory, postcolonial techno-studies, and analyses of interactions between humans and technologies.
