[pccgrads] FW: An Area Studies and Climate Science event: April 7, 3:30pm CMU 226

I have had numerous discussions with scientific colleagues and collaborators
throughout the years about the desirability and difficulty of understanding
and engaging with local communities while doing scientific research
throughout the world. The forum announced below and in the attached flier
seeks to start a dialog on this issue. It would be a valuable conversation
for all of us (and our students). I encourage everyone to attend.
Organized by my Anthropology colleagues, Celia Lowe and Peter Lape, (and
co-sponsored by QRC). I believe there will be additional panel discussions
to follow.

Dear Colleagues,

Please join us for the first discussion event in our workshop series this
year, Engaging Area Studies in the Large Research University. See attached
and below for details. Hope you can join us.

Celia and Peter

Climate Science Across National Boundaries

Tuesday, April 7th, 3:30-5:00, CMU 226

The University of Washington is a global leader in research on archaeology,
paleoclimate, atmospheric sciences, and in ocean and marine science and
policy. The UW is also a center for innovation in international and area
studies, science studies, and community-based research practice. At the UW,
as at many other institutions, however, scientific research is not informed
by an equivalent critical understanding of local cultural values, attitudes
and beliefs about scientific sample collecting, effective ways to share
research results after fieldwork, and potential for collaborative and
community oriented research, particularly when US-based researchers work in
international field sites. Knowledge on how area studies can inform
scientific research in international settings typically remains
compartmentalized within area studies and museum studies. These issues will
be discussed in a round table format by George Nichols (Archaeology, Simon
Fraser University), Suraya Afiff (Anthr!
University of Indonesia), Peter Lape (Archaeology, University of
Washington), Celia Lowe (Anthropology, University of Washington).
