On Thursday, Nov. 29, two of this blog's members will be participating in a conference hosted by the Open University and the UK Resource Centre for Women in SET [Science and Engineering Technology], "Moving Gender and SET Research Forward: New Approaches and Practices." Gwyneth Jones will be giving a keynote address about shadowing a scientist and will read from her novel, Life. Joan Haran will also be present, representing a team that recently worked on the representation of women in Science Engineering and Technology in the UK media.
The conference will be held at Horwood House, Little Horwood, Milton Keynes, Buckinghamshire MK17 0PH. Registration is still open, according to the conference's
website. I'd certainly want to attend if I lived in the UK!
