In April, Angela Potochnik and Melissa Jacquart (Center Director and Associate Director) presented in-progress research at an online event, “Doing Science in a Pluralistic Society,” organized by the Philosophy Department at the University of Dayton. They discussed a current project of the Socially Engaged Philosophy of Science (SEPOS) Research Group, “Divergence of Values and Goals in Participatory Research.” This is a collaborative research project by Lucas Dunlap, Zvi Biener, Amanda Corris, as well as Potochnik and Jacquart.
The Center is thrilled to host a workshop at the University of Cincinnati May 13-15, 2020. This interdisciplinary workshop will bring together philosophers, scientists, and other academics and practitioners to develop theoretical and practical resources for public engagement with science. The four themes of the workshop will be science communication, science education, informal science education, and scientific work with communities. The workshop will include a mix of presentations, panel discussions, and hands-on activities. To learn more, check out ucengagingscience.org/workshop.
