Visiting Speaker Series: Prof. Daniel Kleinman

March 10 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm

An STS Scholar’s Travels in Academic Administration
Visiting Speaker Series: Daniel Kleinman
Associate Provost for Graduate Affairs and Professor of Sociology, Boston University
March 10, 4:00-5:30 pm, Nafziger Room (5055 Vilas Communication Hall)

Although my PhD is in Sociology, my training, research and collaborations in STS have given me substantive and nuanced understandings of the cultures and norms of fields ranging from molecular biology and computer science to English and History. This background has served me well during my time as an academic administrator. In this talk, I describe the ways in which my scholarly background has facilitated my interventions as an academic leader into discussions around building and sustaining interdisciplinary programs, crafting policies on university-industry relations, and using data to build support for more equitable university policies.
