Abstract Title: Disciplinary Inq[ee]ry in Computational Physics
Abstract Type: Contributed Poster Presentation
Abstract: As opposed to practices that reinforce inequitable power structures, disciplinary practices in STEM that converge with themes of resistance (identified through Critical analysis) are better suited to support marginalized students. We identify two instances (within the setting of a computational physics course) where we notice resonance between disciplinary practices and queer theory. We use this queer reading of our learning environment to explore possibilities for queering physics education. We argue that identifying and amplifying STEM practices that are compatible with such themes can support justice-oriented pedagogy and align with efforts to incorporate agency and scientific practices into Physics classrooms.
