“I went into this thinking that objectivity and neutrality were the Name of the Game. That you couldn’t do good research if you were in any way biased or if you had your own opinions or experiences or values that might influence the research.” In episode number 4 of our STS Series, Dr Jacqui Hoepner, an early career research fellow at the Australian National University. They begin by discussing Jacqui’s PhD experience, where she originally set out to navigate the tricky landscape of wind turbines and public health, with good intentions to be a neutral researcher in a very politicised realm, but after receiving some serious push-backs she chose instead to turn her attention to silencing in academia. Then they unpack further what it means to have academic freedom and question where you draw the line around what research should and should not be done. They end by talking about reflexivity and what value anthropology has in studies of science.
