Women in science

On May 9th, 2016, Elena took part in an outreach event organized by Ikerbasque to reveal to what extent women scientists have been concealed in the history programs that we have studied, and to promote awareness of the options young high school students may have as women scientists in the future. Three other Ikerbasque scientists participated in this event: Iratxe Zarrao2016-05-09 emakumeak eta zientzia-18naindia (genetics, UPV/EHU), Amanda Sierra (neurobiology, Achucarro Basque Center for Neuroscience), and  Matxus Perugorria (liver diseases, Biodonostia). They told the audience about their experience carrying out research using an object as a symbol of their career. In the meantime, painter Marimar Muriel sketched her picto-conclusions.

The Basque newspaper El Correo published this article about the event. Here is another follow-up piece, where Amanda Sierra provides statistical data on the situation of women in science.

Hello [MEAT]

Welcome to the blog of the project called “On the interaction between Meaning Types: compositionality and discourse structure” (MEAT), funded by the Spanish Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness (MINECO) and hosted at the University of the Basque Country (UPV/EHU). Its main goal is to do research in semantics and pragmatics, and more specifically, on the interactions between meaning conveyed at different levels (at issue, implicated, presupposed). To know more about the project, visit the about page. In alphabetical order, its researchers are the following: Berit Gehrke, Elena Castroviejo, Laia Mayol, and Zoltan Zato. In this blog, we will be reporting our research activities, so you can track our scientific whereabouts. If you are interested in what we are doing, don’t hesitate to contact us!
