Interested in Feminist Engineering?

Feminist engineering professor seeks motivated, pioneering graduate student candidate.

Alice Pawley is an assistant professor at Purdue University who is interested in recruiting graduate students to study engineering with some feminist theory thrown in. She is also soliciting suggestions on how to increase outreach to potential candidates and how to structure a program to be appealing to students considering graduate studies.

If you have suggestions, go swing by. And feel free to pass this info on to engineering students who might be interested in interdisciplinary studies and/or feminism and engineering. It is so exciting to see new programs like these in development!

[Editor's Note: Two really nifty feminist engineering blogs: She's Such a Geek! and Thus Spake Zuska.]
