The Möbius strip, mostly understood as a mathematical concept –and consequently related to the STEM realm of knowledge–, has been also a noteworthy feminist figuration to think and acknowledge different realities, being bodies, subjects, or sexualities, beyond boundaries, binaries, and opposites.
The fluidity of this one-sided never-ending loop represents the space of possibility of difference. In short, the Möbius Strip as well as the colour pattern we have chosen for it –in reference to the visible spectrum and LGTBIQ+ rainbow flag– depicts our attempt to bridge the gap between STEM and Social Sciences while interrogating gender differences and diversity in Academia.
