Gender and Biological Sciences, 7,5 credits
The course gives an introduction to some central concepts and contributions in feminist science studies, feminist critique of biological sciences as well as the history of science and gender.

The course covers gender perspectives on several areas of biological sciences: sexual selection theory and research, microbiology, sex chromosome research and neuroscience as well as queer perspectives on biological sciences. We will also discuss new models in biological sciences, methods for alleviating biases and making science more inclusive. Course exercises will provide opportunities to engage with and analyze biological sciences from different disciplinary points of departure, whether you are a PhD-student in the humanities, social sciences or natural sciences.
