Abstract: The purpose of this project is to further our understanding of how America’s religious and spiritual experience has shaped its politics by looking at the role of political knowledge formation in the Social Gospel movement. A person’s spiritual thought is well understood to be important to his or her political position, yet this relationship’s impact on political motivation remains largely uninvestigated. To avoid confusion over the role of religion in American politics, we need a greater account of the true function of religious and spiritual thought in American democracy that understands spiritual politics not merely as a priori positions, but rather as the product of a spiritually based approach to knowledge of politics. The Social Gospel movement illustrates how Americans often viewed science as a compliment to religion and how this led to a demand for thought that reconciled the two approaches to knowledge and what this attempt meant for the political knowledge produced. Looking at the thought of the movement, I will demonstrate how the acceptance of the combining rational and religious forms of reasoning has at times led to conflated approaches to instrumental and normative reasoning that have influenced what are considered appropriate political views and policies. The historical investigation of American thought I am conducting demonstrates how beliefs about how truth might be properly known influences the plausibility of political possibilities which, in turn, influences real political and social activity. The fact that the combination of science and Christianity seemed to demand a politics is not insignificant.

"Scientific careers in SET: perceptions of researchers on scientific networks from a gender perspective" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the 4S Annual Meeting – Denver, Sheraton Downtown, Denver, CO, Nov 11, 2015 <Not Available>. 2018-07-17 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p1034714_index.html>

Abstract: The paper analyses the role of scientific networks in scientific SET careers from the perspective of researchers. How do female and male young researcher evaluate the meaning of networks and which strategies do they apply for becoming part of relevant networks? How do senior scientists evaluate the meaning of networks, how do they seem themselves integrated in important networks and how do they see their role of supervisors in relation to the young researchers with regard to introducing them into their networks?
The presentation will draw on the empirical findings of interviews with female and male researchers on different scientific career levels that were carried out in 2012/2013 at one of the biggest technical Universities in Germany. The study was conducted in the context of the European project FESTA -Female Empowerment in Science and Technology Academia. The aims of the project included mapping the perceptions of excellence in the working environment of scientists as well as in appointment processes in order to learn more about how women's career paths in SET disciplines could be improved. One result was that networks were on decisive issue in these contexts.

Abstract: The paper addresses the subject of scientific meetings. Scientific meetings are a sociological paradox -- they are frequently attended and seldom discussed. Considering this premise, the authors propose a reflexive approach of taking the 4S Annual Meeting as a case study. The research is based on mixed methods: a) analysis of a historical database of previous 4S meetings, considering attending authors, their institutional affiliation, origin, papers themes and keywords; b) documental analysis of the programs of previous meetings. We propose the following hypothesis: the 4S meetings were intended as an alternative to traditional, "mertonian" models of scientific communities but its practices often emulate the Matthew effect, especially when considering the geographic distribution of meetings and prizes. This analysis supports a program for "experimental reflexivity", i.e., the use of STS concepts and methods to understand the STS community itself.

Abstract: Science journalists are responsible for the mass media’s representation of life sciences (e.g., biotechnology, genetics, nanotechnology), and for the depiction of research findings in these areas as more scientifically (un)certain. Although researchers have determined that the representational styles of scientific evidence vary among science journalists, the reasons for these differences have not yet been fully investigated. Against this background, for the first time the present study applies a reasoned action approach and investigates the predictors of the journalistic intention to represent scientific uncertainty. This was done using computer-assisted telephone interviews with a representative sample of German science journalists (n = 202). The results indicate that beliefs about the coverage of other media, perceptions regarding the scientific uncertainty of the main field of coverage, perceived expectations of the audience, past behavior, and gender were the predictors that most strongly affected the journalists’ intention to represent life sciences as more scientifically uncertain.
