"People Problems in Data Science: A Case Study from the Intersection of the Social Sciences, Natural Sciences, and Humanities" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the 4S Annual Meeting – Denver, Sheraton Downtown, Denver, CO, <Not Available>. 2019-10-20 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p1035011_index.html>

Abstract: The Collaborative for Historical Information and Analysis (CHIA) is a global data aggregation and archiving project, which aims to collocate and link massive amounts of data from the social sciences, natural sciences, and humanities; allow researchers to identify new patterns from analyzing large-scale aggregated datasets; and provide for the long-term preservation of historical data from 1500 to the present, consolidating and augmenting pre-existing fields of knowledge production. Members of this transnational collaborative include the Institute for Quantitative Social Science at Harvard University; the Great Britain Historical GIS Project at the University of Portsmouth; the International Institute for Social History in the Netherlands; the Department of History at Cheikh Anta Diop University in Dakar, Sénégal; and several US colleges and universities including Boston University, Michigan State University, the University of California, Merced and the University of Pittsburgh. A wide range of tools for communication and collaboration have been discussed in the STS literature, nonetheless communication and collaboration among heterogeneous communities continues to be a challenge. This paper explores people problems (issues of participation and engagement) in a transnational data project, highlighting the social infrastructures that underpin CHIA as a scholarly collective. The paper aims to unpack multiple perspectives on the challenges of and opportunities for multi-national, cross-disciplinary knowledge exchange in a quantitative research culture. Finally, the paper offers a reflective analysis of the author’s former role within the Collaborative: the lead researcher who was responsible for creating and defining policies and practices for curation, communication, storytelling, and visualization.

Abstract: After a long period of Science Propaganda in Russia as an official strategy for Science-Society interrelations we can see remarkable latest transformation of the field of Science Communication from mostly deficit model to more complicated hybrid attempts to build effective communication for scientific knowledge wide spreading. Increasing number of different forms and formats arises, based both on reminiscence of Soviet model of Science Education and modern forms of gamification and Science Representation. As a latent consequence of that, we can see intensive growth of Popular Science within many social groups and population in general. That belief system consists of dense expert knowledge, epistemic hybrid folk-knowledge, quasi-scientific knowledge and practical common sense. Main research question here is whether new movement for Science Communication in Russia will identify itself with nonreflexive scientific knowledge transfer to public or with promoting scientific pattern of rational and critical thinking as social and cognitive norms. Will it be new form of deficit model? Russian Science Communication dynamics shows from STS point of view how the differentiation of Science and Popular Science can detect new multi-directional model of co-production new Scientism Belief System and how street-level users can acquire Science associated behavior, trust in Science and Scientific literacy keeping and combining it with their Common Sense and Folk-knowledge.

Abstract: This paper proposes that identifying cultural dispositions toward science and their consequences should represent a central theme in Science and Technology Studies and the related field of Public Understanding of Science. In short, this paper develops the concept of “science habitus,” which describes a privileged disposition/orientation toward science that encompasses (1) basic knowledge of scientific facts, (2) general trust in organized science, and (3) experiences in college level science courses. Consistent with Bourdieu’s notion of habitus, I argue that cultural dispositions toward science (science habitus) likely represent a symbolic dimension of social class, similar to cultural capital. First, I review how approaches in Science and Technology Studies have addressed the cultural authority of science (implicitly or explicitly) and, where these approaches are inadequate, how they might be further developed. Then, using data from the National Science Foundation’s Science Indictors Survey, I illustrate how Bourdieu’s concepts of habitus, capital, and field provide unique and underutilized tools for exploring public understanding of science.

Abstract: A rise in time and cost pressure has led to video news releases (“footage”) becoming increasingly popular in television editorial offices. Footage represents broadcastable video material which is made available to television stations by companies and institutions for reasons of public relations (PR). Its use is, however, problematical since editorial contents can thus be influenced by third parties. Against the background of the intereffication model of journalism and PR the question of the influence of footage on television reporting is explored on the basis of the example of science journalism. To this end, in a case study 44 German science journalists were asked how they dealt with this material. The results lead to the conclusion that footage is handled pragmatically. In addition, within the framework of a contents analysis of transmission data relating to reporting on the Max Planck Society, the influence of footage material over a period of nine and a half months was determined (n=274). It was revealed here that almost one third of the reporting was directly attributable to PR material whereby contributions induced by footage were represented to a greater extent and were longer than reports based on news releases. The influence on private stations was greater than that on public-service channels. This therefore raises the question about binding rules on how to deal with footage.

Abstract: Understanding emerging adolescents’ ideas about the nature of science is imperative in promoting science enjoyment and the acquisition of a science identity. These are important predictors of persistence in STEM careers, and are also imperative to broadening participation among underrepresented minorities in STEM careers. In a study of 444 middle school aged students, a mixed methods approach was used to assess students' conceptions of ‘What is Science?’. Seventy-nine percent of the youth surveyed responded to this open ended question, and 29% of their 688 responses included a broad conception of science focused on discovery and inquiry. Bivariate results revealed that students with a broad, discovery oriented view of science had a higher science identity as well as science enjoyment.
