A Scientia Education Academy public lecture
What can we do about girls and women being under-represented in STEM subjects at all levels from high school to postgraduate studies?
A talk by Dr Soheil Ashrafi, from Raffles College. Dr Ashrafi argues that design is morally obliged to partake in social justice discourse and social justice is ontologically bound up with design. Considering design as a mode of being rooted in the ontological essence of human, it can be characterised as forming an integral part of social justice theory.
