Fireside Chat with Helen Longino on May 28

In the fireside chats GRADE Center Gender invites academics and public figures to speak about their biography, their motivations and academic practices in an informal setting. These meetings also provide the space for networking among the participants.

Helen E. Longino is Clarence Irving Lewis Professor of Philosophy at Stanford University. From 2008 to 2012 she also was the Chair of the Philosophy Department at Stanford. Before her position at Stanford, she was Professor of Philosophy and of Women’s Studies at the University of Minnesota. From 2013 to 2014 she was President of the Philosophy of Science Association. Her research focuses on philosophy of science, social epistemology, and feminist philosophy. Professor Longino is author of “Science as Social Knowledge: Values and Objectivity in Scientific Inquiry” (Princeton University Press, 1990), “The Fate of Knowledge” (Princeton University Press, 2002), for which she received the Robert K. Merton Professional Award for the best book in 2002, and “Studying Human Behavior: How Scientists Investigate Aggression and Sexuality” (University of Chicago Press, 2013).
