In this talk, Dr. Bronstein looks at the women who were publishing in a leading biological journal, The American Naturalist, in the first fifty years of its publication (1867-1917). How did they enter science, and under what conditions were they able to persist, either as professionals or as publishing amateurs? What lessons can we take away for how to increase diversity in science today?

 

Judie Bronstein is University Distinguished Professor of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at University of Arizona. She served as the first (and, to date, only) female Editor-in-Chief of The American Naturalist, the oldest still-publishing scientific journal in the United States. She has a strong interest in the history of science.
