Deborah Ball was one of the past guests invited to help Oregon State University’s Research in Action podcast celebrate their three-year anniversary by reflecting on lessons learned that could help other researchers. In the April 22, 2019, episode of the podcast, Ball discusses the ways in which citation of others’ work is both a scholarly and a political endeavor—that it is never neutral. Ball says, “the active work of thinking about who is going to be made visible and whose work is going to be credited is really important.”

The podcast is available here. (Ball’s clip is from 7:31 to 10:47.)
