Research Seminar: "Time Capsulation: Conceptual & Methodological Issues in Studying Scheme Change". Dr. Joseph T. Tennis
Join us for a McGill School of Information Studies research seminar on classification scheme change with guest lecturer Joseph T. Tennis.
In his talk Professor Tennis will outline the agenda of studying classification scheme change, enumerate the types and varieties of evidence for scheme change, and then address the epistemic and methodological issues related to how change is studied. Some theories of history and theories of time scales in relation to this question of data methodology will be sampled.
