Linda Tropp will be one of five panelists on the upcoming seminar, "Where We Stand and What We See", hosted by the Institute for Social Science Research (ISSR). The seminar will address the following questions: in what ways does our social position affect the academic work that we do? Does one’s position in society produce "epistemic advantages," allowing someone to see things that others cannot? If there is, what can social science do to accommodate such things? What do such issues imply about the possibility of knowledge in social science?
The panel brings together researchers from a variety of disciplines to discuss whether and how "where we stand" affects "what we see" and "what we can know" as scholars. The seminar is scheduled on Thursday, November 29, 2018 from 4:00pm to 5:30pm and will be located in E20 Machmer Hall, UMass Amherst. Click here for more information.
