Join UWF faculty and staff in a "Brown Bag" luncheon book study of Exploring Research Ethics related to author Charles Murray's Coming Apart: The State of White America, 1960-2010. The book study will focus on examining the book relative to research principles, practices, and responsible conduct in reporting "extant" data (such as the use of census and other types of previously collected data). The book focuses on socio-economic status and the impact on ethics and research integrity.
MURRAY ON 'COMING APART'
"As recently as half a century ago, Americans across all classes showed only minor differences on the Founding virtues. When Americans resisted the idea of being thought part of an upper class or lower class, they were responding to a reality: there really was such a thing as a civic culture that embraced all of them. Today, that is no longer true. Americans have formed a new lower class and a new upper class that have no precedent in our history. American exceptionalism is deteriorating in tandem with this development."
Dr. Susie Jans-Thomas and Dr. Carla Thompson will assist discussions on the text.
