CIPR Research Lunch on Internet Research Ethics (September 30, 2011)
There will be two short presentations, both focusing on issues in Internet research ethics:
- "Oh the Ethics You'll Know", by Nick Proferes, SOIS PhD student. This short (and clever!) presentation shares on-going research into how issues of research ethics are discussed on the Association of Internet Researchers (AoIR) mailing list. This will be a preview of what Nick will present at the AoIR annual conference in October.
- "Research Ethics in the 2.0 Era: Conceptual Gaps for Ethicists, Researchers, IRBs", by Michael Zimmer, Assistant Professor and Co-Director of Center for Information Policy Research. This talk contributes to this growing discourse on Internet research ethics by describing conceptual gaps that have emerged with relation to how researchers and IRBs think about privacy, anonymity, consent, and harm in the 2.0 era. This will be a preview of an invited presentation at the International Symposium on Digital Ethics hosted by Loyola's Center for Digital Ethics & Policy.
We intend to hold informal research lunches (bring your own lunch) a few times each semester, to provide a space for faculty, students, staff, and friends interested in information policy and ethics (conceived of broadly) to share research -- both finished and in progress.
If you'd like to schedule a time to present, please contact Michael Zimmer at firstname.lastname@example.org.
