Undergrad Research Uses Honeybees to Probe Society’s Gender Roles

What do traditional gender roles of women and domestic work have in common with the non-visible labor of honeybees? Through her $4500 Apes Valentes Undergraduate Research Award, Christina Dietz, who is double-majoring in visual arts and psychology, spent her summer drawing connections between the two. What she found is that, in both subjects, the value of labor is lessened based on the lack of visibility it receives.
