Listen: Equity, Exclusion and Everyday Science Learning - book review
9 May 2019
Public Engagement - report
Who is excluded from science? What is the role of museums in this exclusion? In Equity, Exclusion and Everyday Science Learning: The Experiences of Minoritised Groups (Routledge, 2019), Dr Emily Dawson, an Associate Professor in the Department of Science and Technology Studies at University College London, introduces the idea of everyday science learning to critically engage with our understandings of science and the role of institutions in that understanding.
This is well worth a listen to get an idea of the work included in Emily's book if you're interested in engagement with science and technology, and especially so if you are interested in diversity and inclusion.
