Skookumchick has declared a new blog carnival, Scientiae, organized around the broad topic of women in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (or STEM, for those who like acronyms). She’s soliciting posts that fall under one or more of the following:
- stories about being a woman in STEM
- exploring gender and STEM academia
- living the scientific academic life as well as the rest of life
- discussing how race, sexuality, age, nationality and other social categories intersect with the experience of being a woman in STEM
- sharing feminist perspectives on science and technology
- exploring feminist science and technology studies
Both men and women (and anyone in-between) are welcome to contribute to the carnival as long as the topics are relevant and respectful.
Full details on how to submit one of your posts (or nominate a deserving post on someone else’s blog) can be found here, but submissions are due February 27, so don’t dilly-dally! The first edition of the carnival will be published March 1.
