In recent years, gender studies has generated numerous findings and impulses in the technical and scientific disciplines, which have led to critical reflections on disciplinary knowledge and new perspectives. Oriented towards the international project 'Gendered Innovations', we would like to discuss openly and critically the opportunities of gender studies in this interdisciplinary lecture series. On the basis of current scientific localization and
Discourses will be explored to determine whether and which gender perspectives stimulate research and enable new kinds of questions. Guest speakers* who have one of their research focuses in this area will present their research at the event. These will be linked to topics that are also dealt with in the departments and research foci of the Otto-von-Guericke-University Magdeburg. Accordingly, the lectures follow the discourses in the research contexts on site and deal with the question of the perspectives and potentials of gender studies for the technical, natural, sustainability and medical (technical) sciences.
