Data is everywhere: from COVID efficacy rates to election polling, from the justice system to the internet . Data can be a tool to improve our lives, but what about the downside to all of this use of data - not only through hacks and security breaches, but also when data is manipulated to advance certain political and social agendas?

Online workshop by the UC Center for Public Engagement with Science

Public engagement with science involves more than simply scientists explaining scientific facts to the public. Approaches to public engagement must address complex issues like trust in science, political polarization, and understanding science’s methods and social structure.

This interdisciplinary workshop brings together academics and practitioners to develop theoretical and practical resources for public outreach and engagement about science. The aims are to (1) develop connections between philosophy of science and other disciplines with expertise in public engagement and (2) identify and help develop distinctive roles for philosophers of science in the interdisciplinary project of engaging the public with science.
