- An explosive song-and-dance drama about the female Nobel price winners in physics, chemistry and medicine

Thursday, October 12th
12:10 to 13:00 p.m.
The Atrium, Teacher Education Building

This is the story about the reality the women in science have faced over the years: obstacles and resistance, exclusion - even humiliation. We tell the story in our own way with a lot of humor, musicality and interactivity.

In Skandal we meet six of the history's female researchers who received the Nobel Prize and a couple who did not.

The show will be in Swedish.

In cooperation with Kyrkan på campus
