April 17 | Visiting Scholars Roundtable

Wednesday, April 17, 2019

4:00-5:30pm

SJRC’s Common Room (Oakes 231)

S&J will welcome two new visiting scholars to the Science & Justice community. This will be a great chance for everyone to connect with the visitors of the Center, learn about their work and foster emerging collaborations! Interested in visiting Science & Justice? Visit our website for more information on the SJRC Visiting Scholar Program.

At this roundtable, we’ll hear from Karina Rider (Sociology Graduate Student at Queen’s University, Canada). Karina’s research areas are civic action, morality, and defining data justice (specifically within the context of racialized institutions and processes – such as education, housing, transit, and resource distribution). Karina who, after having completed a first round of fieldwork, will share an overview of her ethnographic work on civic action targeting the internet in Silicon Valley. We invite the S&J community to help identify which areas are most promising for analysis and which to focus on as Karina moves into the second round of fieldwork. One of Karina’s goals is to develop a conceptual toolkit for thinking about the relationships between materiality, ideas, and action – an important contribution to our programs including the Seeing Like a Valley Initiative.

This will be a great chance for everyone to connect with the visitors of the Center, learn about their work and foster emerging collaborations! Interested in visiting Science & Justice? Visit our website for more information on the SJRC Visiting Scholar Program.
