Abstract:

Extended excerpts from two faculty panels discussing the meaning of race and gender in various disciplines. They note that history has tended to equate race and gender with difference and the suspicion of being permanently outside civil or civilizable society. While in many science disciplines, race and gender seem to have no effect on the content of research, questions linger over how a more diverse community of scientists might alter the nature of scientific research. Would a differently constituted cadre of researchers reach different conclusions about what is "important" to a discipline? Is "truth" immutable?
