Open Scholar Café - March - Care, Control, and the Politics of Access: Ethnographic Research and Open Data Online
To join today's event: https://iastate.zoom.us/j/99405011147
Calls for open data often center supposedly universal values of transparency and accessibility. This dialogue will examine such calls from the perspective of ethnographic research, where access to research data has historically been limited by design to protect communities, cultures, and individuals. What risks and rewards might openness carry in this context, and how might it reproduce existing forms of power and privilege? Join Marcel LaFlamme (@MarcelLaFlamme_), Open Research Manager at the scientific publisher PLOS, and Sebastian Braun, Director of American Indian Studies at Iowa State University, for a presentation and discussion about openness in ethnographic research in this month's Open Scholar Café.
The Open Scholar Café is a monthly virtual forum for members of the ISU community to meet and discuss open research and scholarship with their peers. Each month, a new topic will be discussed or presented.
