(Re)Imaging Women in STEM Gallery Exhibits March 13 to May 15 2017
Clark Hall Mural Room & the Chemistry Building Lobby & Mezzanine
The (Re)Imaging Women in STEM exhibition at UVA engageS with local and national histories through a collection of visual and narrative portraits of women faculty at UVA who work in STEM departments. The photographic portraits consist of twenty-eight photographs of women STEM faculty while the narrative portraits are based on a series of oral histories conducted with a different set of women STEM faculty members. Together, these portraits not only make these women and their work visible, they reveal how these women pioneers—often the first and sometimes still the only woman in their departments—have navigated, inhabited, and begun to transform the gender-segregated worlds of STEM and the academy at UVA.
There is also a virtual exhibit at http://voicesandvisibilityuva.org/ and a speaker series featuring women who have succeeded in the STEM fields.
