Date and Time: 30th Nov 2016 14:00 – 30th Nov 2016 17:00
Location: Edinburgh Napier University, Craiglockhart Campus
This interactive master class 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.
