Asking Different Questions Project Report
Asking Different Questions: Interdisciplinary Approaches to Science is funded by National Science Foundation Innovations in Graduate Education grant. Co-PIs are Sara Giordano, Sarah McCullough, and Kalindi Vora.
Asking Different Questions explores the following hypothesis: That changing research questions and research agendas will change who is in STEM and the knowledge we produce. This will include how to recognize and address issues of historical bias and cultural complexity, place research in a broader context, and better frame complex research questions, particularly those presented by communities traditionally under-served by science. Each week we explored a different challenge and feminist approaches to addressing this challenge. The sum of these conversations will contribute to the development of the curriculum, which was the focus of the working group in Fall 2019.
