Peter is the Joseph Pellegrino University Professor at Harvard University, a MacArthur Fellow, and spoke on his work around the de-localized production of scientific knowledge–on the ways in which “trading zones” form at the boundary between different scientific languages and practices.

Peter summarized the kind of work he has done on contemporary, massive, spatially dispersed collaborations in physics experiments, and more recent work on the early telegraph networks that so shaped the early formulation of relativity theory.

On June 19, danah boyd participated in the Berkman Luncheon Series to discuss her work and research in the area of social networks. She provided a great historical context to the various sites that have come and gone from the center of Internet activity, as well as some insight into what brought about their successes and failures.

Prior to her presentation she explained, “Publics offer youth a space to engage in cultural identity development. By engaging in public life, youth learn to interpret the cultural signals that surround them and incorporate these cultural elements into their life. For a diverse array of reasons, contemporary youth have limited access to the types of publics with which most adults grew up. As a substitute for these inaccessible publics, networked publics like MySpace and Facebook are emerging to provide contemporary American youth with a necessary site for peer engagement.”

danah boyd is a doctoral candidate in the School of Information at the University of California-Berkeley and a fellow at the USC Annenberg Center for Communications.
