Geof Bowker Speaks at Michigan

Geof will be speaking as part of the Yahoo! Lecture Series at the University of Michigan’s School of Information on April 10, 2013.

The End of the Article
In this talk, I analyze the development of the scientific article as the coin of the realm for the transmission of knowledge. I argue that the database, over the past 200 years, has grown into a form of transmission and exploration which has been largely under-recognized. I then discuss examples of new forms of knowledge expression which both deploy databases more effectively and move from a largely logocentric model to one engaging a wider set of senses. Finally, I explore the possibilities for developing these new forms within the academy.
