Negotiating Science Identities with Gender, Race, and Perceptions of Expertise Across Settings

This three-year study focused on girls' engagement with science and how they negotiate identities with and in opposition to science in a community-based afterschool program. The study Rahm reports on here is part of a larger multi-sited ethnography of learning and identity in science. She observed girls whose families had recently immigrated to Montreal, Canada and were participating in an afterschool program focused on creating science newsletters and science fair projects. These observations were supplemented by interviews with students and instructors. Twelve girls from ages 11 to 14 participated in the activity each year (2008-2011). The students' families had mixed immigration histories coming from Morocco, Congo, Caribbean, Greater Antilles, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka. Original Article: Rahm, J. (2012). Collaborative imaginaries and multi-sited ethnography: space-time dimensions of engagement in an afterschool science programme for girls.

The Best Jobs of 2014

For a mathematician like Jessika Sobanski of San Diego, numbers unlock a world of career possibilities. “There’s a huge, huge range of opportunities for mathematicians,” says Sobanski. “Some can go the education route, but there's much more.” Hiring demand also is very high among corporations, government agencies and the non-profit world, she says. In fact, the field’s versatility is a primary reason it outscored the competition and ranks No. 1 in our 2014 Jobs Rated report. View External Website
