Situating Open Government Data: A crossroads in government-citizen relationship

Date & Time:
January 25, 2016 | 9:30 am - 10:30 am
Social Sciences 217
Daniel Paré, Associate Professor of Communications, University of Ottawa

You’re invited to a talk by Daniel Paré, Associate Professor of Communications at the University of Ottawa. Much hope is expressed about the cultural, economic, political and social justice opportunities afforded by open government data initiatives. Yet, the ways in which open government data is understood and implemented varies widely. Drawing of the findings of research conducted with the SSHRC funded partnership grant, How the geospatial web 2.0 is reshaping government-citizen interactions, this talk explores infrastructures of open government data, emergent design-reality gaps, and their implications for government-citizen relationships.

Date: Monday, January 25th

Time: 9:30 a.m. – 10:30 a.m.

Place: Social Sciences 217
