What is feminist glaciology? How does public policy work from the nano to body scale, from the local to the global? Who might be socially or physically excluded from fieldwork? How might cities be homophobic? Why are storms often female? Can you ‘touch’ science? Are forests racist?

At first glance, these are some very strange questions. But by considering the thinking behind them – how people, places and knowledge are embodied – we can better understand why diversity in science matters, and how fairness and equality can be promoted through the academic workplace.
