Skeptical Salon: The Madame Curie Complex: The Hidden History of Women in Science by Julie des Jardins
October 29, 2015, 7:30pm
5 E. 14th Place, Chicago IL
This month's Skeptical Salon book is The Madame Curie Complex: The Hidden History of Women in Science by Julie des Jardins. Bring a snack to share and/or a beverage of your choice... we usually have a pretty good spread thanks to everyone bringing goodies, so let's keep it up! Description from amazon.com: Why are the fields of science and technology still considered to be predominantly male professions? The Madame Curie Complex moves beyond the most common explanations—limited access to professional training, lack of resources, exclusion from social networks of men—to give historical context and unexpected revelations about women's contributions to the sciences. Exploring the lives of Jane Goodall, Rosalind Franklin, Rosalyn Yalow, Barbara McClintock, Rachel Carson, and the women of the Manhattan Project, Julie Des Jardins considers their personal and professional stories in relation to their male counterparts—Albert Einstein, Robert Oppenheimer, Enrico Fermi—to demonstrate how the gendered culture of science molds the methods, structure, and experience of the work. With lively anecdotes and vivid detail, The Madame Curie Complex reveals how women scientists have often asked different questions, used different methods, come up with different explanations for phenomena in the natural world, and how they have forever transformed a scientist's role.

Yes, we are having a Meetup for September! There's no formal speaker or agenda for this one, so we'll just be hanging out like a plain ol' Skeptics in the Pub. We can talk about Skepticamp or Festivus or potential future speakers...or any interesting skeptical topic we like. See you then!
