Prof. Paula-Irene Villa Braslavsky (LMU Munich)


The paper will present the state of the art in the vast amount of research on the mutual entanglement of gender, power, and knowledge in academia. Far from being an easy or overly evident constellation, the many ways in which science is gendered are as complex as they are empirically relevant.

The paper will also address how evidence-based policy advise - in search for more equality - has to deal with the paradox of stressing (intersectional) gender differences in order to overcome them.
