Potential Difference Exhibition

Potential Difference examines socio-cultural aspects of science, with a focus on gender that is still a barrier to the career progression and optimisation of scientific potential in the UK. The project provides a landscape for postgraduate students to explore the impact of culture on our perceptions and expectations of female scientists. It also creates a unique and stimulating environment for cross-disciplinary interaction between early career scientists, archivists and professional artists.
