Barbara Herr Harthorn, a master of interdisciplinary studies and a UCSB women's studies professor, combines gender, race, class and media issues - all under the umbrella of nanotechnology.
Harthorn's multifaceted approach to science has earned her the 2008 American Association for the Advancement of Science Fellow honors.
Currently, she leads one of three research groups associated with the National Science Foundation nanotechnology center on campus. Harthorn is the co-director of the NSF National Center for Nanotechnology in Society, and she works with political science and communication professor Bruce Bimber to study risk perception and social response to the newly developing field of nanotechnology. Harthorn said the other two research groups examine the historical context of the nanoenterprise and the innovation system for nanotechnology.
