May 30, 2006 – Women of Color in the Sciences Colloquium: Orphans of Infrastructure

Tuesday, May 30 / 4PM / Oakes Mural Room

This colloquium will focus on the distinctive experiences and perceptions of women of color in the physical sciences. The goal of this event is to establish communities across the disciplines and to discuss the issues surrounding the lack of representation of women of color in the physical sciences. The graduate students leading the discussion are Kirsten Howley (astrophysics), Chanda Prescod-Weinstein (astrophysics/physics), Chelsey Juarez (physical anthropology), and Karen Glocer (computer science). Students and faculty of all disciplines are invited to attend this open discussion.

Sponsored by the Research Cluster for the Study of Women of Color in Collaboration and Conflict
