Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
It's worth a second look. She comes out of the hard sciences and still has a foot in the lab while simultaneously looking at how scientific knowledge is produced and disseminated. Her presentation, which I attended last year, didn't have any of the trappings of post-modern discourse and was certainly rooted in biology. It was about The Emergence of Gender Difference in Young Children and how her new work applies dynamic systems theory to the study of human development, more specifically looking at sex differences in bone development and the emergence of gender differences in behavior in early childhood.
She describes her research areas as:
  • science & technology studies -  how is scientific knowledge produced?
  • gender, race & science - how do race and gender impact the ways in which scientific inquiry is conducted?
  • sexuality studies - what is the biological nature of human sexuality?
  • biology : planaria - asexual reproduction of flatworms.
