Using Computational Tools to Uncover Structure and Status in Academic Fields and Public Debates
New computational tools and data allow for new approaches to uncover structure in the social organization of scientific fields. These questions are explored in two settings. Achim Edelmann examines a significant public policy debate on whether to use potentially pandemic pathogens in biomedical experiments; Kieran Healy analyzes the structure of status in English-language Philosophy over the past 25 years.
Achim Edelmann ist Assistent am Institut für Soziologie an der Universität Bern.
Kieran Healy ist Associate Professor für Soziologie an der Duke University.
