Asking Different Questions Working Group Invites New Participants

Are you interested in integrating a commitment to justice into your research? Join FRI for Asking Different Questions (ADQ). This project takes on the challenge of changing research cultures to create more equitable and accurate knowledge. We are doing this by creating and pilot testing discussion-based curriculum designed to train graduate students in how to locate their research questions within larger societal context, identify historical bias, and address questions of those traditionally under-served.

ADQ meets Wednesdays from 12-1 pm in the Feminist Research Institute space. Each week, we will explore a different challenging issue at the intersection of science and justice. Topics include:

  • Politics of Doing Science
  • Identity and Belonging in Science
  • Applying Frameworks of Intersectionality to Research and Lab Culture
  • Impacts of Language and Metaphor on Scientific Processes
  • Identifying Myths of Science and How They Impact Research
  • Studying Race, Sex, and Gender in Biomedical Reseach
  • Undoing Histories of Exclusion in the University and in Science
  • And more!

Please RSVP if you plan to attend. Light lunch is provided. To receive all emails about the Asking Different Questions project, sign up here and be sure to check the box saying you are interested in ADQ.
