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.
We want to give everyone a few updates about how the spread of COVID-19 will impact Center activities going forward. Of course, this information is subject to change as time goes on.
Workshop: The Workshop on Public Engagement with Science that was previously scheduled for May 13-15 has been postponed. We are currently working on figuring out new dates, and will make an announcement when that is figured out.
Public Engagement with Science Graduate Class: The University of Cincinnati has extended Spring Break through Wednesday March 25. After that date classes will move primarily online. The Public Engagement with Science Graduate Class will also therefore be moving online. Projects with community partners will continue, with appropriate modifications.
Social Engaged Philosophy of Science Research Group (SEPOS): SEPOS meetings are cancelled from March 13 to April 10.
