The History of Women: Scientific EXXcellence in Europe
If you are interested in the history of science, women’s contributions, or in supporting women in their ambitions, this study abroad is for you! Join us in a European exploration into how politics, custom, and society shaped the lives of early female scientists, and how these individuals worked to overcome obstacles and break the barriers of scientific thought. Along the way, we will discuss dynamics of Latter-day Saint families with either spouse in science. We will visit memorials, museums, and local sites in six countries, including London, Paris, Berlin, Warsaw, Krakow, Florence, and Rome. We encourage men, women, and couples to apply!
