The power and perils of partnership: volunteer monitoring histories as complex spatial networks

June 27, 2022

1:00 pm – 2:00 pm
Location: Online

In powers and perils of partnership Liam will discuss the life cycle and network development of 3 different volunteer water monitoring programs in the state of Montana. We will explore how trust in volunteer data are formed and how data are used (or ignored) in the complex water governance processes in a headwaters state. Liam will present his actor network theory inspired approach to unpacking the complexities surrounding the development of trust in science beyond the deficit model of science education.
