Reading Group

Affiliated with the Science Policy Group, this reading group will focus on intersectionality in science education and policy. Introducing readings from critical race theory and feminism, we will examine how the inclusion and exclusion of marginalized groups shapes STEM education and scientific policy-making. Open to both undergraduates and graduate students, participants need no background in social sciences or cultural studies. We will have bimonthly meetings to discuss the readings with guest lecturers in the field.

Meeting times: Second and Fourth Tuesday of the month from 5:30 – 6:30 p.m.

Location:  Asian American Cultural Center, Conference Room, 210 West Nevada Street, MC-149 Urbana, IL 61801
