International Workshop “The Role of Visibility in Academic Evaluation. (E)Valuation Studies in Science and Higher Education”

An der Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin findet von 15.-16. November 2018 ein internationaler Workshop zum Thema “The Role of Visibility in Academic Evaluation. (E)Valuation Studies in Science and Higher Education”. Die Ameldung ist bis um 1. November 2018 möglich.

  • Zeitraum: 15.11.2018 – 16.11.2018
  • Institution: Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin
  • Ort: Berlin / Deutschland
  • Anmeldung bis: 01. November 2018
  • Kontakt: Anne K. Krueger (HU Berlin/ German Center for Higher Education Research and Science Studies)

Recent research on academic evaluation indicates that visibility plays an important role in how evaluation procedures take place and what kinds of effects they produce. Questions of blinding, transparency, confidentiality, and anonymity are predominant issues that are constantly discussed. As specific constellations of visibility between evaluation objects and subjects, they are central for configuring the evaluation process. Evaluation procedures furthermore produce visibility through directing attention to positively (or e.g. in cases of scientific misconduct to negatively) evaluated objects, ideas, persons, or practices. In particular, current debates about new ways of peer reviewing, performance measurement through altmetrics, or the rise of academic social media platforms demonstrate that evaluation procedures are configured through specific constellations of visibility that serve at the same time to legitimate evaluation results and to produce and navigate attention.

The workshop aims at bringing together current research on evaluation
procedures with sociological perspectives on visibility in the context of
science studies and higher education research. We will discuss, on the one
hand, how specific constellations of visibility influence evaluation
results and their acceptance as legitimate. On the other hand, we will
discuss the role of visibility that results from evaluation procedures and
currently becomes itself the object of measurement and evaluation.

The Workshop is jointly organized by the Department of Sciences Studies and
the Research Group “Reflexive Metrics – Retroaction and practices of
quantified orders of worth in science” at Humboldt-Universitaet zu Berlin
and by the Research Cluster “Evaluation Practices in Science and Higher
Education” at the German Centre for Higher Education Research and Science
Studies (DZHW).

IMPORTANT: If you would like to attend the Workshop, please register via
email (evaluationpractices[at]dzhw.eu) until November 1, 2018.
