Read about upcoming Brown Bag Seminar meetings here. There will be a minute introduction to the interdisciplinary theme, followed by open discussion of 40—60 minutes. BB lunches are open for everybody. We hope multidisciplinary audience from different faculties and units of the central campus.
The language of the meetings can be Finnish or English. The most important prerequisite for participation is not an academic career, but an interest in interdisciplinary collaboration and research. We at HSSH believe that an extensive view is needed to understand and solve the great challenges facing humanity! Martti Vainio is the professor of phonetics and the head of department of the Department of Digital Humanities at the University of Helsinki.
Natural language emerged through our ability to speak as a symbolic means for co-operation between individuals. It is based on truthfulness and transparency and it forms the foundation for modern human societies and culture. What speech is and how it relates to the construction of meaning, as well as our shared environment, is not well known. What we know is that speaking links abstract meanings with signifying physical action.
Speech science, thus potentially presents a possibility to link the study of individual and social behaviour with theories arising from natural science.
The epistemic links revealed by our communicative behaviour form an epistemic chain from physics and biology to aesthetics and ethics. As such it provides a principled framework for studying how language is related to many societal problems we are currently facing.
In my talk I will present the main events in the natural history of language and discuss how they relate to our speaking as modern humans. His primary research agenda focuses on the social and political consequences of climate change, and efforts to stem these negative and often unequal outcomes. He also has a methodological focus in developing computational and network approaches for studying complexity in political phenomena.
As social and political behaviour increasingly moves online, social science and humanities researchers are presented with new opportunities to understand the drivers and consequences of behaviour, whatever their topic of interest.
At the same time, online platforms present a new set of challenges for research, both in terms of how we conceptualize online behaviour either in relation to offline behaviour or by itself and the methodological choices that we must make given the rich but messy data.
Drawing on three studies that look at contestations over climate politics in Twitter space — one of which was recently published in Global Environmental Change , and the others in progress — I demonstrate these opportunities and challenges. How the research culture of social sciences and humanities should be reformed?
To ensure interdisciplinarity in research, we need concrete incentives that reward interdisciplinary work, especially in terms of hiring and promotion practices. As is, early career researchers are dissuaded from pursuing cross-disciplinary collaboration because on the most critical matters they are still evaluated within disciplinary bounds.
He works at the intersection of digital anthropology, philosophy, and data science. If not, can we talk about theory in the first place without first trying to situate it somewhere — geographically, culturally, and historically? How should the research culture of social sciences and humanities be reformed?
Anthropologist David Graeber once remarked that anthropologists have historically played the nagging role of gadflies. She is also an extraordinary professor at the University of Stellenbosch, South-Africa. Research and researchers have played a key role in defeating the crises posed by the COVID pandemic.
They also provide a core resource for societal recovery after the pandemic and building the means to face such threats in the future. Yet, the COVID pandemic has also had its impact on research and researchers, and hence potentially on the future of academia.
A few position papers and reflections on the impact of COVID on researchers have been published, but empirical research on the topic is still scarce. Based on the very limited empirical evidence it seems that the futures of particularly early career researchers might be at stake due to the pandemic. Such understanding is key in providing well-fitted support for the PhD candidates to cope with and overcome challenges set by the pandemic.
In his Brown Bag Lunch talk Professor Saarinen will tell his experiences in a multidisciplinary project. From to , he was leading an Academy of Finland multidisciplinary Centre of Excellence. The group investigated the mechanisms of inclusion, exclusion, toleration and agreement in religious groups. They also connected with the global scholarship of recognition procedures in philosophy and political science. Some results of this venture are presented in his Brown Bag Lunch.
Professor Saarinen’s recent books include Recognition and Religion Oxford and the Finnish trilogy Oppi rakkaudesta, luottamuksesta, toivosta Gaudeamus The research environment for health and well-being research is becoming increasingly challenging for universities. Gaining access to vital data sources has become costly and new legal barriers to research have emerged. The projectification of research produces collaboration gaps that prevent long-term commitment to research.
Few fields of research enjoy high levels of access to research in real-life contexts. Yet, the demands for real-world relevance, applicability and impact are increasing in numerous fields.
The focus of the discussion is on the rationale and early experiences of the UHealth profile-building area. While genuinely new research ideas tend to emerge slowly, our research environments tend to change rapidly. Matching the needs of our researchers and our organizational capacities for engaging with research collaboration with different types of partners require is thus challenging. At UHealth, we explore different ways for organizing the improvement of our matching abilities”, says Research Director Ville-Pekka Sorsa.
From the perspective of a political scientist the study of political behaviors of citizens and political elites is core. It allows us to analyses and to enrich our understanding of democratic systems and the world we live in, with the citizens providing the input to political life and electing our political representatives, and the political elites making the actual decisions that decides on the future direction of our societies. But the study of behavioral research at large is of course of much broader relevance to researchers in the social sciences.
Over the last two decades the methodological tools and perhaps in particular the availability of data used for analyzing the behaviors including attitudes, values and actual behaviors of citizens as well as political elites has developed rapidly.
Traditional forms of survey research has moved from national programs to internationally coordinated efforts with increasing possibilities for comparative research. Online panels in combination with survey experimental approaches allows for longitudinal studies of opinion change, and provides stronger basis for causal claims. In this talk Professor von Schoultz will discuss the development in the field of political behavior from a data and methods oriented perspective, and the possibilities it entails for behavioral research more broadly.
She will also present an initiative for a social science infrastructure designed for behavioral research. Professor von Schoultz specializes in research on the political behavior of political elites and voters, primarily focusing on perceptions on democratic processes and competition within parties. Social scientists are increasingly applying machine learning approaches to analyse data.
However, machine learning process require making procedural choices. Researchers have shown that these processes are sensitive to made choices. In the worst case, scholars may accept or reject an hypothesis due to procedural choices, not due to a phenomena existing in the data.
What can machine learning methods learn from the decades of discussion and development which has supported other social science research methods? Matti Nelimarkka leads the Helsinki Social Computing Group, and interdiciplinary group focused on computers in social science. Their research focuses on digital democracy and computational techniques in social sciences, especially workflows and questions related to validity and reliability of research outcomes.
Discovering new ideas is time consuming and often meeting new people and engaging with them helps in this process. At the same time, we need to carefully think how to build our own competences to do as good research as possible: digitalisation and datafication have already changed the society and we need to keep up with the change. The National Library of Finland provides a wide selection of research data for researchers — from medieval fragments to the latest tweets.
The most extensive and most used digital collection is digitized newspapers available from the past years. In addition, they will talk about the research services under development. Data produced by the National Library of Finland, such as ontologies and metadata from collections, are freely available to all.
The aim is to make the digitized material from the collections as widely available as possible. Materials in limited use, such as the web archive and electronic legal deposits, can be examined at the local libraries. The aim of the research services under development in National Library of Finland is a new research culture in which researchers and cultural heritage organizations work together to develop the use and quality of materials. The aim of the project is to enhance the usability of digital materials and the renewal of research services from the perspective of developing data services.
Juha Rautiainen works as an information systems specialist at the National Library of Finland. He specializes in research data services, digitalized materials and related licensing solutions. Data literacy for responsible decision-making DATALIT is a project funded by Strategic Research Council that start from the idea that data literacy is a precondition for responsible and evidence-based decision-making.
Data literacy consists of understanding data and epistemic, ethical, legal, and technical questions related to it. It is founded on a grasp of the processes of collecting, processing, analyzing, interpreting, and presenting data. This provides a basis for understanding how data, and the models built on it, can serve as evidence and the inferences they allow.
In his speech, professor Ylikoski will discuss the relevance of the project for the SSH-fields, focusing especially on possibilities of developing philosophy of data that does not respect disciplinary boundaries. The project involves researchers in computer science, sociology, law, cognitive science and philosophy. Improved data literacy means better decision-making, more realistic expectations about the possibilities of data analytics, and sharper critical discourse on future dangers”, describes professor Ylikoski the importance of data literacy in an interview of University of Helsinki.
Currently he has been interested in institutional epistemology, the use of computational methods in the social sciences, and the challenges of causal complexity in understanding socio-ecological phenomena. How the research culture of SSH-fields should be renewed? For the future, it would be important to pay attention to the actual diversity of disciplines and finding more commonalities.
Science studies can be a great help in this. He is interested in the role of science in society and culture. Although in a democratic society science is rarely subject to direct censorship, various latent mechanisms limit academic and the freedom of expression. These problems relate, on the one hand, to the increasing political and economic instrumentalization of research and, on the other hand, to intimidating and silencing researchers in public arenas. I seek to open up these mechanisms and practices.
He leads the research group Mediating Expertise. The chapters of the book have been written by 17 researchers from different disciplines: from natural sciences and social sciences to humanities and technology research. There you may come across researchers from different fields with whom you create joint writing or research projects. Her research has focused on the societal adoption of new technology, in particular new energy technologies, with an emphasis on social organization, local learning and user and citizen involvement from the perspectives of STS, innovation studies and practice theory.
The energy transition refers to a growing share of intermittent, fossil-free power production in the energy system, which is integrated increasingly with transport, buildings, storage and flexible demand, thus highlighting the role of energy users. Until now, most of the energy transition research has been techno-economic, but the social impacts are gaining increasing attention, including issues of fairness.
– Zoom now allows concurrent meetings
One of the best productivity tips is to plan your week, especially if you have a lot of meetings. The good news is that you can schedule multiple Zoom meetings in advance. When it comes to scheduling meetings that take join two zoom meetings simultaneously on different devices – join two zoom meetings simultaneously o at different times, there are no limits.
As you know, every meeting has its own individual ID. Therefore, по этому сообщению just have to make sure to send an invitation to other participants. The app assumes that not all of your Zoom sessions have the same duration, topic, etc. Scheduling recurring meetings means that you can schedule more meetings with the same meeting ID. It also means all the details, like time and duration, will be the same.
You can choose whether you want the meeting to be held daily, weekly, or monthly. That way, you can make your quarterly or even yearly schedule at once. Bear in mind that the meeting ID expires after one year. You can use both Google Calendar and Outlook for scheduling recurring meetings. This can be done from either your phone or laptop.
Google Calendar is the most popular tool among Zoom users. You can also schedule the meeting for every workday, every Wednesday, or even every first Thursday in the month.
Outlook users have three parameters. You can choose the frequency of the meetings monthly, weekly, etc. We hope this article helped you to schedule Zoom meetings faster and easier. As scheduling is essential for organizing your time and resources. How do you usually schedule your meetings? Have you ever had any problems scheduling multiple meetings on Zoom?
