NSM Movie Night #5: Radioactive

Friday, April 23

6:30–10 pm

In April, we partner with the UH College of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences (CLASS) to bring you a well-rounded view of the first woman to win a Nobel Prize, Marie Curie.

NSM’s Moores Professor of Physics, Lawrence Pinsky, will cover the basics of Curie’s research and the science behind her discoveries. CLASS Professor of English and Director of Women’s Gender & Sexuality Studies and the UH Institute for Research on Women, Gender & Sexuality, Elizabeth Gregory, will look at the gender dynamics within the scientific community and the impacts of Curie’s discoveries on women’s participation in science and the world.
