Susanne Kink

I have studied sociology at University of Graz and currently I am a Phd candidate at the Faculty of Business, Economics and Social Sciences in Graz and external Phd candidate at the RWTH Aachen University. My pdh thesis is about ‘Gendering of Academic Cultures in Natural Sciences’ where I analyze the co-construction of science and gender and therefore the heterogeneous processes of gendering in geology and chemistry. Since May 2013 I am a university assistant at the Department of Sociology in the research area ‘Sociology of Gender & Gender Studies’. My research and teaching focus is on Sociology of Gender, Science Studies and Research of Higher Education, Feminist and Queer Science and Technology Studies, Qualitative Methods, Sociology of Technology and Queer Theory.
