Please join us for our first ALL-DAY workshop
SATURDAY, OCTOBER 16
10:00 am - 5:30 pm
Maurer School of Law, Room 335 (Faculty Conference Room)
This first workshop of the 2010-2011 Sawyer Seminar will take up the theme of error and failure in scientific practice. The papers will explore how reports on experimental failures and dead ends are circulated, what processes prevent them from being communicated, and to what extent failures and dead ends may be regarded as productive forces in knowledge generation.
Speakers will include:
Peter Dear (Cornell)
Kevin Elliott (University of South Carolina) Eric Meslin (Indiana University Center for Bioethics/School of Medicine) Scott Hyslop (Indiana University, Bloomington) Laura Seger (Indiana University, Bloomington)
