Today we’ll talk with Sharon Shattuck, director and producer of the documentary film Picture a Scientist, which offers a sobering portrait of struggles women face in pursuing studies and careers in science. UPR is among several organizations sponsoring a virtual film screening of Picture a Scientist (March 5-7) and a panel discussion (March 8). We’ll also be talking with Sara Freeman, USU Assistant Professor of Biology, who is coordinating the USU events; and Sojung Lim, USU Assistant Professor of Sociology, who is participating in the panel discussion. We’ll also hear sound clips from the film.
Sponsors for the film screening and panel discussion are the USU Center for Intersectional Gender Studies and Research, the Utah Women and Leadership Project, USU College of Science, USU Department of Biology, the USU Ecology Center and Utah Public Radio.
