Theodore M. Porter
UCLA Department of History

In recent years, social and historical studies of science and technology have come to understand their subject more inclusively. The efforts and understandings of people who worked largely outside European traditions or who had little formal education in science are more and more featured in historical accounts of science, for example. UCLA Professor Theodore M. Porter will explore a related topic, the respect and even reverence conferred these days on data work. Histories of statistics and of data encourage an appreciation of the significance of these more humble forms of scientific labor. It is not easy to fix the boundaries of science.
