School of Information Studies, 3661 Peel, Rm. 106, Montreal, CA

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.

Joseph T. Tennis is an Assistant Professor at the Information School of the University of Washington, a member of the Textual Studies faculty at UW, an Associate Member of the Peter Wall Institute for Advanced Study at The University of British Columbia. He has been a visiting scholar at the State University of São Paulo since 2009.

Everyone is welcome.
