Citizen Science: Recognizing epistemic innovation in community-driven inquiry

Citizen Science: Recognizing epistemic innovation in community-driven inquiry

Recognizing epistemic innovation in community-driven inquiry

by Gwen Ottinger

Environmental regulation in the United States protects communities from pollution using a series of concepts, such as risk assessment and chronic versus acute effects, that do not resonate with the experience of people living next to polluting facilities. Communities have responded by pioneering new methods for collecting and interpreting air quality data that advance alternative concepts that better convey their experience. Their activities constitute epistemic innovation—innovations that, by intertwining new concepts and new technologies change how and what we know. However, they have been widely misunderstood as bids to expand democratic participation in regulatory science-as-usual. Recognizing epistemic innovation in cases of environmental injustice, I argue, calls on researchers to (a) ask whether other forms of peer-production and citizen science are being similarly misrecognized, and (b) consider how credentialed scientists can support the interpretive innovations of social justice activists.
