Wow, I can not believe that I have already completed my third residency. I feel that I am beginning so see where my work is going, which is so far removed from where it once was. I am just amazed. I look forward to this term to push me further into feminist theory and perspectives as I consider my role as the other within a white male community of scientists. Here was my work for the term.
As a female in the sciences, I have worked to collect and archive testimonials to provide different perspectives into the female experience within the science assembly line. Within this pipeline factory, women have had to develop armor, succeed while constrained by a male fraternity, and grow academically while sometimes shedding their femininity and cultural identity. Within a daily silence, she researches a new proposal and analyses her most recent findings, while negotiating advances and power plays. A solo act of passion, within a loveless marriage.
