Parity as Practice: The Politics of Equality
Professor Natarajan is a theoretical astrophysicist interested in cosmology, gravitational lensing and black hole physics. Her research involves mapping the detailed distribution of dark matter in the universe exploiting the bending of light en-route to us from distant galaxies. However, we are not going to talk to Professor Natarajan about astronomy and physics. We are going to talk with her about gender parity issues. Professor Natarajan is the current chair of the Women Faculty Forum at Yale, and she recently co-organized, along with Judith Resnik and Reva Siegel at the Yale Law School, the first Gruber conference titled Parity as Practice: The Politics of Equality.
