An exploratory investigation of the experiences of Black immigrant women in undergraduate STEM

Meseret Hailu, PhD, Arizona State University
Brooke Coley, PhD, Arizona State University

The research presented in this seminar investigates the politicized, racialized, and gendered dimensions of the presumably “objective” disciplines of STEM. This work uses critical discourse analysis and case studies to better understand how Black immigrant women use their cultural epistemologies to attain undergraduate degrees in engineering. The research presented will use a qualitative approach, involving 40 interviews with undergraduate engineering students of a large public university in the southwestern United States.

All talks will be posted online afterwards at: saberbio.wildapricot.org/Diversity_Inclusion
