Rahm, J., Gonsalves, A. et Lachaîne, A. (2021). Young women of color figuring science and identity within and beyond an afterschool science program. Journal of the Learning Sciences, 1-38.
To attend to the social production of girls of color in science through the lens of history in person and local contentious practice, we propose a relational and nonrepresentational reading of STEM pathways. We invoke the conceptual lenses of wayfaring, knots, and meshwork to highlight the infinite ways of figuring science and becoming a science person in movement. We understand this as a life-long embodied process, entangled and marked by intersectionality and emotions.
