Systematically Speaking: How Do Natural History Museum Web Sites Represent Science? by Roy Hawkey( Book )

1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This paper explores the representation of taxonomy, systematics and other aspects of science on selected natural history museum Web sites, using two different but related approaches. One uses a series of categories relating to the nature of science (derived from an evaluation of exhibitions) and applies these to each Web site. In essence, this approach seeks to identify and, where possible, quantify evidence of representation of science as a human endeavor, scientists at work, the status of scientific ideas, doubt and debate, and opportunities for visitors to formulate their own opinions. The second approach concentrates on science processes and practices, the methodology and operation of science, including selection of research programs, collection and analysis of data, evaluation of evidence and its interpretation, development of models, hypotheses and theories, and publication, debate, and peer review. The paper shows that some natural history museum Web sites are now beginning to share their passion for science, especially less fashionable areas, such as systematics, and that such developments coincide with changes in views about the public understanding of science and about the roles of museums.
