Date and Time

Location
Edinburgh Napier University

This interactive masterclass will be led by Professor Steve Fuller from the University of Warwick (www2.warwick.ac.uk/fac/soc/sociology/staff/academicstaff/sfuller/). Professor Fuller has a background in history and philosophy of science and has developed the field of ‘social epistemology’, which also has roots in information science. A good recent example of his work is this piece on the place of interdisciplinarity in academic knowledge production: http://items.ssrc.org/what-is-the-problem-for-which-interdisciplinarity-is-the-solution/. Under Professor Fuller’s guidance students will explore a range of research philosophies applicable to information science and related domains. The session will be of value to students at all points in the PhD process. 


Afternoon refreshments will be provided during the master class. Travel expenses will be reimbursed for Information Science students travelling from Scottish Universities and we have limited funding for students who may require overnight accommodation in Edinburgh.

Doctoral students attending this event may also wish to attend the Association for Information Science and Technology (ASIST) Annual Lecture which will be given by Professor Steve Fuller after the master class. Details of the lecture are available from the ASIST website, linked from the booking page of this event.
