The upcoming Networks and Complex Systems Talk will be held on November 23, 2009 from 6:00-7:00 p.m. in the Grand Hall at Neal Marshall Center, Indiana University, Bloomington. SLIS faculty member Katy Börner is the organizer of the talk series.

The talk will be given by Elinor Ostrom (2009 Nobel Prize in Economic Sciences).

In this presentation, I would first like to present an article recently published in Science entitled “A General Framework for Analyzing Sustainability of Social-Ecological Systems.” After presenting an overview of the published article, I will go on to discuss some of our current efforts to develop this ontological framework still further.

Dr. Ostrom is the Arthur F. Bentley Professor of Political Science and Senior Research Director of the Workshop in Political Theory and Policy Analysis, Indiana University, Bloomington; and Founding Director, Center for the Study of Institutional Diversity, Arizona State University. She is a member of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, the National Academy of Sciences, and the American Philosophical Society, and a recipient of the Reimar Lüst Award for International Scholarly and Cultural Exchange, the Elazar Distinguished Federalism Scholar Award, the Frank E. Seidman Distinguished Award in Political Economy, the Johan Skytte Prize in Political Science, the Atlas Economic Research Foundation’s Lifetime Achievement Award, and the John J. Carty Award for the Advancement of Science.
