  1. 1. Doing Physics - Doing Gender An Exploration of Physics Students' Identity Constitution in the Context of Laboratory Work

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Anna T Danielsson; Uppsala universitet.; [2009]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Physics; Learning; Higher Education; Science Education; Physics Education; Gender; Situated Learning; NATURAL SCIENCES Physics; NATURVETENSKAP Fysik; Physics with specialization in Physics Education; Fysik med inriktning mot fysikens didaktik;

    Abstract : In Sweden today women are greatly under-represented within university physics and the discipline of physics is also symbolically associated with men and masculinity. This motivates in-depth investigations of issues of physics, learning and gender. READ MORE
