Interventions in gender politics of disciplinary cultures, epistemes, and artifacts of natural, technical and urban and regional planning sciences. Case studies from the educational sciences

Gender studies having to do with science, technology, and urban and regional planning sciences are asymmetrical in the focus of their research. That is, while the situation of women in education and work is at the center of most research, the research findings about disciplinary cultures, epistems, and artifacts have not been integrated systematically in the content and applications of STEM and urban and regional planning sciences. The concept presented below makes it possible to develop case studies on these research perspectives. I developed and implemented it in 2013-2016 at the Technical University Berlin for the study program Gender Pro MINT. The case studies presented here were produced as final theses by graduates of the study program and show different starting points for transdisciplinary and feminist interventions in the STEM fields oriented towards gender-appropriate diversity.



Round Table on July 11 2018, TU Berlin


Center for Interdisciplinary Women's and Gender Studies (ZIFG), International Post-Doc Initiative (IPODI) and the Chair of Innovation Economics invite you to the Round Table Discussion on 

How do women transform technology?
Women definitely contribute to the processes of knowledge creation, application and dissemination. Gender equity is a key issue for the achievement of better results in science and technology, especially in what regards innovation. 
The aim of this round table is to discuss in epistemological terms and through case studies HOW gendered perspectives may challenge, change and contribute to technology and innovation. Different perspectives will be discussed in theory and practice about influence of the gender dimension to the scientific research and technical design, in private and public sectors, in market and non-market organizations and in the society in general.

2018-07-02, 12-16 o'clock "Gender in Teaching"


This semester, the faculty meet & greet at the Technische Universität Berlin is dedicated to the topic of 'Gender in Teaching'. The focus will therefore be on gender and diversity conscious higher education didactics as well as the teaching of gender specific knowledge in specialized courses, especially the MINT fields.


With it's Gender Pro MINT program leading to a certificate, TUB offers its STEM and Administration students a one of a kind opportunity to acquire gender competence as part of their vocational training in Germany.


Teaching gender competence as a competence in action is also part of the student work of the Techno Club at TUB.


We look forward to inform you about our programs and projects!


12:15-12:30 Opening presentation


The day opens with a lecture by Prof. dr. Sabine Hark, "The place where the memory of the human is preserved" (Max Horkheimer). What is University today?"


12:45-13:45 Panel discussion


Afterwards, representatives from various faculties and committees introduce a panel discussion on "Gender competence in teaching: compulsory program or specialist knowledge?" Questions on gender education in various courses in STEM and Organisation are discussed: What are the experiences? What are the effects ? To what extent and in what form can gender studies be integrated into courses in STEM and Administration?


Panelists include: Prof. Ulrike Woggon (Fac. II), Prof. Sebastian Möller (Fac. IV), Anna Heilgemeir (Fac. VI), Prof. Petra Lucht (Fac. I), Christian Schröder (Commission for Teaching and Studies) and Prof. Heike Wiesner (HWR Berlin).


14:00-16:00 marketplace and workshops


During the marketplace, the following programs and projects are presented several times in a 20 minute cycle from 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm:

  • Gender Pro MINT in TU Berlin: Bärbel Mauß , coordinator, introduces the Gender Studies program for students of natural and technical sciences and administration.
  • The Gender Toolbox of TUB: Kathleen Heft  guides you through the toolbox.
  • 'Gender in STEM and Planning Sciences': Prof. Petra Lucht gives insights into transdisciplinary teaching research projects and qualification work
  • Techno-Club: Dr. Inka Greusing presents the offer for high school students * of the Techno-Club.



With poster presentations from:

  • Fix-IT. Fixing IT for Women
  • MINTgrün Projektlabor How knowledge creates knowledge. Acting responsibly in technological and natural sciences.


14:00-16:00 - Room H 1.036


Diana Drechsel, a member of the transdisciplinary project Fix-IT, offers a workshop on »Objectivity-critical teaching - what can this look like? - Experiences and practical examples from work with pupils. Diana has been offering workshops at the Techno-Club (based at the ZIFG) on objectivity-critical scientific work for five years. In close cooperation with dr. Inka Greusing (head of the Techno-Club), she has, over the years, developed a workshop concept that frames the insight of the women identified students * in research and university teaching based on gender research. The project also offers concrete support for the Abitur  examinations.

In the workshop she will give an overview of her work with the students and work together with the participants on the challenges and opportunities of an objective-critical conception of teaching.


The participants will get to know the teaching concept of the Techno Club workshops and have the opportunity to exchange their own understanding of science and objectivity in order to develop ideas as to how to implement gender based research and moments of critical objectivity in their own teaching.



14:00-16:00 - Room H 1.035 


Dr. Ilona Pache and Prof. Dr. med. Urmila Goel (both from Humboldt University Berlin) offer the workshop Reflexions and exchanges on critical and discrimination sensitive teaching. The basic idea of ​​the workshop is to support teachers who, autonomously or through equality and/or diversity policies, want to implement non-discriminatory teaching but face guidelines that, between disciplinary exigences and didactic possibilities, can seem unsatisfactory and at times contradictory. By presenting the Diskriminierungskritische Lehre. Denkanstöße aus den Gender Studies(2016: AG Lehre ZtG HU) brochure, they wish to open a collegial exchange on experiences of insecurity or helplessness, as well as to collect and discuss tried and tested solutions.


The Faculty Meet and Greet is designed and organized by the Center for Interdisciplinary Women and Gender Studies (ZIFG) of the TU Berlin.

Online Documentation for the Lecture Series Politics of Artifacts and Knowledge


Politics of Artifacts and Knowledge - Lecture Series on Transdisciplinary Gender Studies in STEM and Planning Sciences 

By interacting with actors outside of academia—e.g. in politics, in the media, and the economy—research, development, and innovation in the STEM and Planning sciences transform society and policies at the local, regional, national and global levels. There is, however, hardly any explicit integration of gender and diversity aspects in these changes. That is, no integration of the results and research perspectives of gender studies. This has far-reaching consequences for the continuation, re-establishment, and re-structuring of social inequalities, norms, and regulations –all of which carry, implicitly and explicitly, gender and diversity dimensions. We need to ask, therefore, how transdisciplinary perspectives make it possible to identify and analyze the gender and diversity aspects of the STEM and Planning sciences in order to systematically and reflexively integrate these perspectives back into the disciplines of STEM and Planning sciences.
