Title: Others as peers: a contribution to the sociology of recognition in knowledge production

Brief abstract: The two mains aspects of social inequality/justice are distribution of material resources and recognition of dignity (Fraser, 2000). If the sociology of distribution is well studied, by Piketty (2014) for instance, a sociology of recognition does not yet exist (Lamont, 2018). I use the latter approach to analyse the Extreme Citizen Science (ECS) case study in which “high-status” professional scientists aim to give indigenous communities access to science. My objective is to understand how “low-status” groups could gain recognition and worth.
