”Not too many ladies, but too few gentlemen”: on the gendered co-production of social science and its publics
2013 (English)In: Social science in context: historical, sociological, and global perspectives / [ed] Rickard Danell, Anna Larsson & Per Wisselgren, Lund: Nordic Academic Press, 2013, 33-47 p.Chapter in book (Other academic)
The chapter discusses the role of the public and its gendered aspects. Empirically, the case-study focuses on the very first public social science lectures at Stockholm University College in 1888. By analysing this seemingly peripheral event, it is argued, it is necessary to situate the event historically in its broader social, cultural, and political context, and apply a more circular perspective to the distribution of agency, if we are to understand the full complexity of the co-production of early academic social science and its gendered publics during this formative phase.
