Presentation: The Conservative War on Science: What’s a Librarian to Do? [Confessions of a Science Librarian]

(Before It's News)

Just a quick post to get a recent set of presentation slides up here on the blog.

Earlier this week a colleague in the Science and Technologies Studies program here at York hosted me in her fourth year undergraduate seminar class. Rather than my accustomed and normal role of librarian (I happen to be the STS liaison librarian at the moment), I was invited to appear as seminar subject. In other words, she wanted me to talk about my long history of science policy advocacy and activism and a little about how I feel about the current Canadian government.

Which I sort of did, I guess. I also ended up talking about how I view activism in an academic research context, which of course, lead me to talk a little about the implications of altmetrics in a “publish or perish” academic environment.

Of course, there’s a surprise ending, but I’ll leave that to you to discover in the slides. By the way, it might seem that there are a lot of slides, but most of them are really quite brief.

Enjoy!

  • there isn’t science anymore.. there are people who profess to be scientists but they’ll arrive at any decision that will keep their grants coming in. Policy, politics and coming up with fraudulent data to continued employment aren’t science!
