Roundtable: Opening Up Research for the Greater Good? Ethics, Privacy, and Data

  • Brown Institute for Media Innovation 2950 Broadway New York, NY 10027 USA (map)

Columbia’s Center for Oral History Research’s director Mary Marshall Clark will speak on a Panel and Roundtable on Thursday, October 25th. In the current political climate, opening up access to research and research data can be both a moral imperative and a careless decision that puts the lives and livelihood of the most vulnerable at risk. In this panel discussion and roundtable, three scholars will discuss the social and ethical responsibilities of gathering, curating, and sharing data from very different perspectives.

The title of Mary Marshall’s presentation is “Documenting Truth in a Time of Denial and Surveillance: Ethical Dilemmas Oral Historians Face.”

Other panelists include Manan Ahmed, “Torn Apart/Separados: Visualizing Data for/with Critical Eyes” and Lauren Allen, “Open Data, Data Rescue, and Risk.”
