• The network i-GAP (Interferences of Gender and Physics – Engendering Knowledge Production in the Material Sciences) integrates expertise from science studies, history of science, science education, social and political science as well as cultural studies with that of physics and related disciplines. Crossing disciplinary boundaries is a substantial characteristic of the more than 20 European and Northern American network members’ mindset. Our aim is to establish stable research collaborations on gender and physics and to build international research cooperations. []
