Dr. Catherine Riegle-Crumb (University of Texas at Austin) will give a presentation on December 6th as part of the IES-PIRT Proseminar series.

Examining the Social Construction of Gender Inequality in STEM Fields

Abstract: While gender parity has been reached on most academic markers in the K-12 space, gender segregation in field of study in college remains pronounced, as young women are much less likely than their male peers to aspire towards and enter some STEM fields, primarily engineering and computer science majors. This talk will focus on the social construction of gender inequality in STEM fields, specifically the presence of bias and stereotyped beliefs, and their implications for gendered expectations of college majors. In addition to considering the (re)construction of gender inequality, the role of counter-stereotypes and potential for disruption will also be discussed.  

The Institute of Education Sciences-funded Predoctoral Interdisciplinary Research Training (IES-PIRT) program is an interdisciplinary fellowship program designed to train students of diverse backgrounds to become outstanding researchers in the educational sciences. In addition to funding doctoral students from the seven affiliated departments across NYU the program includes a proseminar series. The series brings together presentations by both NYU and external experts who will help to introduce, reintroduce, and consolidate students' advanced understanding of the concepts of internal, external, construct, and statistical validity.
