Better Science – A Question of Equality!
Wednesday, 1 September 2021; Friday, 3 September 2021; Wednesday, 22 September 2021
Online via Zoom
Spurred by the Better Science Initiative, the Faculty of Philosophy and History of the University of Basel will host a series of events on scientific excellence, equality and non-hierarchical recognition of diversity and difference.
What does good science need? To what extent is this related to the diversity of researchers and research topics? What conditions do diverse researchers, faculty, students, and staff need for good science and for reconciling their academic activities with broader professional, civic, family, or other commitments and self-care? How do these issues play out for different groupings? To what extent are equality and the recognition of diverse lifestyles a condition for good science – or, as critics argue, an obstacle?
This series of events will include a workshop, a chance for exchange among students, and a panel discussion.
