Dr. John Spencer (Psychology, CLAS) will talk about a recent National Science Foundation workshop of the same title. The workshop, held October 2-3 in Washington, DC, brings together leading theorists and practitioners of "civic science" to refine and enrich this concept through the lens of civic agency. Civic agency highlights the political (not partisan) nature of science - science as a powerful source of knowledge for action in the world that negotiates a shared democratic way of life.
