“Dynamics and Diversity in Epistemic Communities”
Cailin O’Connor (UC Irvine)
Friday, December 4th, 2015
4-6pm (followed by a reception)
CUNY Graduate Center, room 5307
Please join us for Cailin O’Connor’s presentation of a paper co-authored with Justin P. Bruner (abstract below):
Academics and other researchers regularly engage in strategic interactions—bargaining, cooperation, collaboration, etc. Given this strategic setting, how do the dynamics of social learning in epistemic communities influence outcomes of various actors? In particular, I focus on minority groups in academia. As I argue, evolutionary game theoretic models indicate that such actors may be disadvantaged through social learning.
