Sawyer Seminar Lecture: "No BS Research" by Travis Rich
Thursday, February 18, 2016
Speaker: Travis Rich, PhD Student, Viral Communications, MIT Media Lab.
Many domains of research are mired in destructive politics, egotism, and inefficiencies. The reality of research, how it's conducted, and how it's recorded is often ignored or obscured due to existing publication, tenure, and social systems. We explore the development of tools to change this trend.
This talk is presented in conjunction with the HRC Sawyer Seminar, "Platforms of Knowledge in a Wide Web of World: Production, Participation, and Politics."
