On April 28, 2023 at 12 p.m. Prof. Dr. Lucy Avraamidou will offer a critical synthesis of studies on gender matters in science education from 2014 until 2022. The online - talk is organized around 3 research areas:
• understanding gender gaps and gender stereotypes in science,
• gender performativity and identity-based approaches to gender explorations,
• intersectional approaches and queer theories in science.
Join the event to find out about the existing knowledge and the gaps in the knowledge base as well as ideas for future research directions in science education with a focus on gender.

Lucy Avraamidou is the Director of the Center for Learning and Teaching and the Head of the Institute for Science Education and Communication at the University of Groningen in the Netherlands.
She received her PhD in Science Education from the Pennsylvania State University in the USA. Upon its completion, she worked as a Research Associate at the Center of Informal Learning and Schools at King’s College London and the University of Nicosia in Cyprus.
Her research is associated with theoretical and empirical explorations of what it means to widen and diversify STEM participation in school and out-of-school settings through the lens of intersectionality. At the heart of the account of her work is an exploration of underrepresented groups’ identity trajectories and negotiations with the use of narrative and life-history methods.
