Hosted by: General Anthropology Division
Of interest to: Practicing and Applied Anthropologists, Students
Our Data Scavenger Hunt seeks to playfully engage Annual Meeting attendees around ideas about data, across the discipline's various fields and contexts, but also in relation to broader arguments currently being voiced about data as necessary for validation of knowledge claims and part of the public footprint of science (including the social sciences).
We envision this event as a fun way to enliven serious conversations within and across the discipline of anthropology about our relationships to data, diverse sorts of data, and how these data are encountered and circulate.
This special event builds on a recent NSF-funded workshop that explored calls for transparency through data sharing, and the ways such calls might not be easy, possible, or even legible, for certain kinds of qualitative or interpretive social scientific practice. The hunt will conclude with this organized reception, during which the winner will be announced and different stories, and challenges, of data collection discussed and explored.
