  • 1. Creating New Spaces for Science Presentation to GRST09 Felicia M. Sullivan March 5, 2009
  • 2. What kind of new spaces? <ul><li>Informed by the radical science of the 1960s and 70s: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>address issues of power </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>understand that science is not neutral </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>critique science contexts (social, political, and psychological) </li></ul></ul>
  • 3. What kind of new spaces? <ul><li>Also informed by critiques of STS and feminist epistemologies of science: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>bridge between theory and practice </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>connect academic researchers and communities (especially communities that are poor, marginalized and oppressed by the dominant culture) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>allows knowledge to be driven and informed by the experiences of these communities </li></ul></ul>
  • 4. A Couple of Questions <ul><li>Can these new spaces for science be created within the context of capitalism? </li></ul><ul><li>Can we learn from past examples? </li></ul>
  • 5. An Example <ul><li>How did the ARPAnet . . . . </li></ul>
  • 6. An Example <ul><li>. . . become the Internet? </li></ul>
  • 7. An Example <ul><li>How did a technology of the Cold War military industrial complex . . . . </li></ul>
  • 8. An Example <ul><li>. . . become a global interconnected network serving a diverse world population? </li></ul>
  • 9. An Example <ul><li>How did a technology designed to withstand a thermonuclear attack . . . . </li></ul>
  • 10. An Example <ul><li>. . . become a tool for a plethora of creative and productive activities? </li></ul>
  • 11. Design played a role . . . <ul><li>Open </li></ul><ul><li>Decentralized </li></ul><ul><li>Connected </li></ul>
  • 12. . . . . amplified by . . . <ul><li>Usability </li></ul><ul><li>Cost </li></ul><ul><li>Knowledge </li></ul>
  • 13. . . . which allowed . . . . <ul><li>For new objectivities (Harding, 1991) to culturally reconstruct (Hess, 1995) the technology and its uses. </li></ul>
  • 14. New spaces for science should … <ul><li>make the vast knowledge capacities of scientific communities available to all. </li></ul>
  • 15. New spaces for science should … <ul><li>provide access to the tools, materials, and techniques of science to more people and communities. </li></ul>
  • 16. New spaces for science should … <ul><li>build up the capacities of local communities to engage in their own scientific research. </li></ul>
  • 17. New spaces for science should … <ul><li>create networking opportunities between scientists and non-scientists. </li></ul>
  • 18. Some examples <ul><li>Living Knowledge: The International Science Shop Network - http:// www.scienceshops.org / </li></ul><ul><li>Directory of Open Access Journals - http:// www.doaj.org / </li></ul><ul><li>Open Courseware Consortium - http:// www.ocwconsortium.org / </li></ul><ul><li>Open Science Notebook - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Open_Notebook_Science </li></ul><ul><li>SciBarCamp - http:// www.scibarcamp.org / </li></ul><ul><li>Open Data Consortium - http:// www.opendatacommons.org / </li></ul>
