Greater Boston useR Meetup with Mara Averick

Jun 26, 2018 · Boston, United States of America

"That's not [data] science!"

The boundaries of science and its constituent disciplines have never been static. Nevertheless, these boundaries and their associated terms have been fiercely defended and debated from within. Scientific norms and authority are established with an audience in mind — the public, policymakers, stakeholders, and even institutions. Though 'public understanding of science' has been the subject of academic inquiry for several decades, the channels and opportunities for engagement have changed dramatically with the rise of social media, and 'democratized' vectors of communication, including the co-production of open-source software.
