Schwartz 及Gina Neff等学者共聚一堂,探讨PIAL数据和研究对从社会学到公共政策指定等一系列领域的积极影响。

Lee Rainie及Barry Wellman以PIAL项目数据为基础的Networked:the New Social Operating System一书已于2012年由麻省理工大学出版社出版,中文版权已由中国传媒大学出版社引进,北京大学新闻传播学院杨伯溆教授及其工作团队(北大新媒体)精心翻译,即将面世。

This session highlights the contributions of Lee Rainie and his team at the Pew Internet & American Life Project (PIAL) as this year’s recipient of the ASA award for Excellence in Reporting Sociology. This award recognizes professionals who have been especially effective at using the media – either written, performed live, photographed, recorded, or filmed – to inform the public of social issues, giving them a broad awareness of the sociological approach and sociological findings. The Pew Internet & American Life Project has become the standard bearer for surveys about how technology is shaping our families, our civic life, our health, and our society. This year we are pleased to honor Lee and his team for their broad reaching impact in reporting findings, working with sociologists to report on social trends, and in making their data publicly available – benefitting scores of sociologists and other researchers interested in understanding the intersection of web-based technology and the human experience. This session features a conversation among Lee, sociologists who have used PIAL research or data for their own research and teaching and recognizes the impact that public, empirical sociological investigation for the social good can have on scholarship and news. The panel will focus on the impact of Lee and PIAL’s data and research have had across various areas of sociological inquiry and public policy.
