Event Image Diane Bailey: Technology Choices: What Role for the Computer Versus the Human?
3:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Why do people who do similar kinds of work and who have similar technologies available to them make different choices about how, and to what extent, they employ those technologies to accomplish their tasks? 

I explore that question in the particular context of the role that people allot to computers in their work. Drawing on a 10-year empirical study of engineers in three occupations, I’ll show that different logics across the three occupations (logics of understanding, speed and belief, respectively) explain engineers’ choices with respect to computer-based technologies, and these logics in turn reflect occupational factors such as product liability, testing capability and the nature of competition. 


Calling this explanation of technology choices an ‘occupational perspective,’ I will contrast it with four existing perspectives: technological determinism, social constructivism, deskilling/upskilling theories and sociomateriality. 


I will argue that a benefit of an occupational perspective is that it allows for variation while permitting prediction, thus accomplishing what other explanations cannot.


Diane E. Bailey is an associate professor in the School of Information at the University of Texas at Austin, where she studies technology and works in information and technical occupations. 

Her current research interests include engineering product design, remote occupational socialization, and i nformation and communication technologies for development  (ICT4D). With an expertise in organizational ethnography, she conducts primarily large-scale empirical studies, often involving multiple occupations, countries, and researchers. She publishes her research in organization studies, engineering, information studies, and communications journals. 

She is the author, with Paul Leonardi, of the MIT Press book, Technology Choices, Why Occupations Differ in Their Embrace of New Technology.


Professor Bailey has won teaching awards at UT Austin, Stanford University and the University of Southern California. Her research has won best paper awards, a dissertation award and an NSF CAREER award. 


She holds a PhD in Industrial Engineering and Operations Research from the University of California, Berkeley.

Physics Colloquium, "Quarks of Many Colors"
4:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Presented by: Tom DeGrand, University of Colorado Boulder

Abstract: Numerical simulation of quantum chromodynamics (QCD) is a successful way to compute the properties of strongly interacting particles from first principles. However, it doesn't give much insight into why the numbers are what they are. Long ago Hooft argued that QCD could be understood most simply when the “three'” of the three colors was taken to be a large number. But nobody could compute anything like a reduced matrix element with this idea. Recently, people have begun to marry these two stories. I'll tell you a bit about them both, put them together, and see what we find. Remarkable regularities emerge.

Coffee, tea and cookies will be available in DUAN G1B31 beginning at 3:45 p.m.

7:30 PM

José Rivera’s “References to Salvador Dali Make Me Hot” is a gripping, fantastical story told with Dali-esque magical realism. Gabriela is uprooted from the South Bronx when her husband, Benito, is stationed in the middle of the desert after the Persian Gulf war. She confides in her only friends, the Moon, Coyote, Cat and her next-door neighbor Martin. The real and the imaginary come together to tell a story of one woman’s lofty dreams to be freed from her stifling, mundane life.
