Theory In A Transdisciplinary Mode: The Rhetoric Of Inquiry And Digital Humanities, Chris Ingraham May 2015

Theory In A Transdisciplinary Mode: The Rhetoric Of Inquiry And Digital Humanities, Chris Ingraham

Poroi

The sciences and humanities have long been regarded as discrete intellectual cultures, separated by a sharp epistemic divide. Recently, however, turns toward "transdisciplinarity" have intimated the growing importance of overcoming disciplinary boundaries. The Rhetoric of Inquiry and digital humanities are two transdisciplinary projects that have attempted, respectively, to bring humanistic inquiry to the sciences, and to bring scientific inquiry to the humanities. This paper attempts to trace the parallel genealogies of both projects in an attempt to theorize some common traits of theory in a transdisciplinary mode. I suggest that articulating these projects with one another enables us to suppose ...


Harnessing Agency For Efficacy: “Foldit” And Citizen Science, Ashley Rose Kelly, Kate Maddalena May 2015

Harnessing Agency For Efficacy: “Foldit” And Citizen Science, Ashley Rose Kelly, Kate Maddalena

Poroi

Protein folding is an important area of research in bioinformatics and molecular biology. The process and product of protein folding concerns how proteins achieve their functional state. A particularly difficult area of protein folding is protein structure prediction. There are many possible ways a protein can fold, and this makes prediction difficult, even with the aid of computational approaches. Protein folding prediction requires significant human attention. Foldit, an online science game, provides an innovative approach to the problem by enlisting human beings to solve puzzles that correlate with protein folding possibilities. Such work aligns broadly with emerging trends in citizen ...

Disciplinarity And The Rhetoric Of Science: A Social Epistemological Reception Study, William J. White Dec 2014

Disciplinarity And The Rhetoric Of Science: A Social Epistemological Reception Study, William J. White

Poroi

This paper weaves together several elements to construct a reception study in the rhetoric of science, reflexively applied to the rhetoric of science itself as a field. This analysis supplements a reading of the criticial reception to Alan Gross’s The Rhetoric of Science and its transformation into Starring the Text (i.e., a renamed “third edition”) with an examination of citation data regarding Gross’s book. The citation data provide some support for the idea that many of Gross’s readers perceived him as taking a position in the “Science Wars” of the 1990s. The essay builds a theory ...


Leveraging Rhetoric For Improved Communication Of Science: A Scientist’S Perspective, Jamie L. Vernon Jan 2014

Leveraging Rhetoric For Improved Communication Of Science: A Scientist’S Perspective, Jamie L. Vernon

Poroi

Abstract: The set of rhetorical engagements in science, technology and medicine presented at the 2013 ARST preconference panel provide case studies of the value the rhetorician offers science outreach programs. As an invited respondent from the scientific community, I took this opportunity to provide a critical perspective to the panel. In my opinion, the rhetorical contributions the panelists delivered through their collaborations with scientists make a compelling case for strategically incorporating more practitioners in the science outreach workforce.


Where’S The Rhetoric? Broader Impacts In Collaborative Research, Leah Ceccarelli Jan 2014

Where’S The Rhetoric? Broader Impacts In Collaborative Research, Leah Ceccarelli

Poroi

Rhetoricians involved in funded collaborative research with scientists have discussed some of their own rhetorical choices in conveying to their research partners the unique and valuable contributions made by rhetorical inquiry. But different definitions of what expertise is offered by someone trained in rhetoric as a field of study shape their conclusions, as does the fact that most are in the early stages of this collaborative work. They have provided an energetic start to what promises to be a spirited, valuable, and lengthy conversation about how rhetoricians of science might think about the broader impacts of their research.
