This workshop will facilitate a dialogue between physicists and experts studying the "culture of physics", with the goal of plotting the path of least resistance toward an equitable and just scientific practice within physics.

Our sessions will be coordinated discussions around topics including:

— Epistemic Injustice: understanding exclusionary practices in the academy
— A Focus on Physics: specific issues of accessibility in physics
— Towards Epistemic Justice: an exercise on collective sense-making and understanding

We aim to bring together experts in physics and its varied social/philosophical/historical aspects to create an active environment that moves us toward our goal of a just and sustainable universal science serving a global community.

Our speakers include:

Chanda Prescod-Weinstein Meytal Eran-Jona
Martina Erlemann Nuril Munfaridah
Carolina Vidor Minna Salminen-Karlsson
Wafaa Khater Jaclyn Bell
Melissa Dancy Lucy Avraamidou


We look forward to welcoming you -- either virtually or in-person -- to the historical university town of Göttingen -- "Die Stadt der Wissenschaft" (City of Science) -- which, in the early 20th century, was one of the main centres for the development of modern physics -- an apt location for pushing the boundaries in inclusive, sustainable scientific methods and practices.
