In our increasingly interconnected world, who sets the global research agenda? Who is able to participate? And on whose terms? How does open access amplify unheard perspectives? In this free public lecture, esteemed social anthropologist Dr. Hebe Vessuri will discuss why giving free access to research does not just provide access to the general public, it is also enables new opportunities for participation in the global knowledge exchange.
This talk is part of "Making Knowledge Public", a six-part lecture series dedicated to understanding the changing role of research in society. It will be held at SFU Burnaby’s Presentation Studio (ASB 10900) and will be followed by a free reception.
