Bradley Observatory: Amy Lovell

Most of Bradley Observatory’s open houses focus on a topic in physics or astronomy with lectures given by Agnes Scott faculty, students, alumni/ae or local scientists. This event will feature Professor Amy Lovell and her lecture entitled, "Astronomy Outside the Box: Scientific Development Around the World and in Communities of Color".

What are the fundamentals of scientific knowledge in astronomy?  Who figured them out and when?  Who gets credit for astronomical discoveries and ideas?  We’ll review some of the development of astronomical understanding and applications, taking a closer look at perspectives and contributions of civilizations outside Europe.  Additionally, we’ll look at some demographic trends in participation in Astronomy, Space Science and related fields to emphasize the continuing need to work for equity and diversity in scientific education and development.
