Trans* in STEM

The PRAXIS Lab is currently in the design phase of a research project which will explore the experiences of Trans* students in STEM academic programs in the South Eastern US. In this multi-pronged investigation, we are working closely with community partners.

 

Our priorities are:

  • Develop a systemic literature review of Trans* and Queer students and professionals in STEM

  • Conduct an analysis of university policies on healthcare and inclusion for Trans* students

  • Conduct a photovoice design method with students at STEM universities

  • Explore sites of resistance to exclusionary discourses

  • Understand the discourses which both hinder and support Trans* students, through interview and situational analysis methods

  • Develop recommendations for schools to better support all students

  • Get students involved in making change in our communities
