INVITATION TO SUBMIT: Special Issue: Gender and Intersectionality in Engineering

 

Call for papers for a Special Issue of GST: “Gender and Intersectionality in Engineering”

Editors: Carol Morris, Alice Moncaster

This Special Issue of the “International Journal of Gender, Science and Technology” will focus on the issue of gender, including gender intersecting with other diversity (intersectionality), in engineering. Published in 2019 to coincide with the 100th anniversary of the UK Women’s Engineering Society, we are interested in publishing both academic papers and industry or education case studies. In so doing we hope to bring together the widest perspectives.
