Bibliography: Gender

Compiled by Gül O. Kremer and Saraj Gupta, Summer 2008

In an effort to take into account how the gender of engineering students' and faculty interacts with the educational process, the research team conducted a review of the engineering education and higher education literature related to gender. As a resource for individuals who are interested in learning more about gender in engineering education, we offer the following bibliography containing some sources we used to enhance our understanding of this construct and develop related survey items.

Keywords: gender, gender diversity, gender and teams, gender and engineering, feminist pedagogy, recruitment and retention of women in engineering, gender studies
