An inspiring conversation

This Bloggingheads diavlog between Kathryn Clancy of University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and John Hawks of University of Wisconsin-Madison is quite good. I especially recommend it to any young women considering a career in science and to any young academic considering a start in blogging, but I think anyone who is interested in science will like it.

Topics include:

  • Kate’s study of ladybusiness in Poland
  • News for women with “abnormal” menstrual cycles
  • Does academic blogging fit a university’s mission?
  • Pitfalls for women scientists
  • Did anthropology declare itself to be non-science?
  • Science: not just another way of knowing
