History and Legacy of Ivory Anatomical Manikins

Events - All Combined (Huginn Feed) - Tue, 2016-10-25 20:00
Tue, Oct 25, 2016
4:00 PM - 6:00 PM
Rubenstein Library Holsti-Anderson Family Assembly Room 153
Cali Buckley will present "The History and Legacy of Ivory Anatomical Manikins." Ivory anatomical models comprise a little-known set of objects that were popular with male doctors of the late 17th- and 18th-centuries. Their narrative is currently being revised in light of a history of questionable assumptions. Though small and largely inaccurate, the story of anatomical manikins reveals how the politics of medicine impresses meaning on medical objects - often transcending the needs of the scientific community. Ms. Buckley will present on her current hypotheses as well as the process by which medical objects can be examined according to social history, connoisseurship, and material culture.

Each week, a speaker is invited to prepare a 35-minute informal presentation for a 50-minute time slot. The presentation is centered on a scientific problem or visualization technique. Participants in the audience are encouraged to engage in a discussion with the speaker. The goal of the weekly meetings is to build an interdisciplinary community whose combined knowledge can facilitate research and promote innovation.

White 107 (White Lecture Hall)
Film Screening: "A True Believer" (Liu Xiaolei, 2015, 80 min, China, in Chinese w/English subtitles, Color, Digital) / "A True Believer" is Liu Xiaolei's inquiry into old but ever more important ethical dilemmas of good and evil, and the individual's fate, as well as a filmmaker's relation to the camera that could be many different things, like a detective device that could be used to "capture and punish," something for the filmmaker to "hide behind," or a medium to "experience the hurt" of those being filmed. "A True Believer," a documentary that "took five years or so to make," looks into the ethics and economics of pick-pocketing focusing on the self-righteous members of Falcon, "an anti-pickpocketing organization," and the pick-pockets they chase. There is also an "Uyghur boy" that "appears" in the filmmaker's life and changes many things, including his relation to his film./ About the Filmmaker: Xiaolei Liu, born in 1984 in Dalian city, graduated in TV editing and directing from Liaoning University. He worked in DDATV for one year, established a culture and media company for three years, and then engaged in producing advertisement, documentaries, and feature films as a freelance. He participated in the Memory Project 2014 and completed his documentary A True Believer in 2015. / Presented by Duke University Libraries.

SSRI~ Workshop: Introduction to Qualtrics Survey Software

Wed, Oct 19, 2016
2:00 PM - 4:00 PM
SSRI-Gross Hall 230E
This workshop offers an introduction to Qualtrics survey software, a package available (at no cost to researchers) for use across Duke's campus and medical center. This powerful, easy-to-use system is a great way to collect information online, whether as part of a research protocol or for administrative purposes such as program evaluation. This workshop will introduce participants to the Qualtrics system, demonstrate how to set up an account, create a questionnaire and access its results. It will also cover some basic tools that can be used to customize the questionnaire to fit your needs, such as using display and skip logic to collect more detailed information from a subset of your audience. The workshop is taught through the Duke Initiative on Survey Methodology (DISM) in collaboration with the Duke Office of Information Technology (OIT). Participants will receive a very brief overview of the consulting and other services DISM offers to help Duke researchers develop and conduct surveys.

SSRI~ Workshop: Qualitative Data Management Strategies and Techniques

2:00 PM - 4:00 PM
SSRI-Gross Hall 230E
Compared to survey research, data management strategies in qualitative research are often ad-hoc, and produced after the data collection process has been completed. Different qualitative methods produce different types of data and require different analytical approaches, yet there are several strategies worth considering for managing your data and can be planned and deployed prior to commencing data collection in order to facilitate the transition from data collection to data analysis. This workshop will cover a range of qualitative data management strategies in order to help researchers plan for data collection, or to help researchers manage data during or after the collection process. Some time will be given to the role of NVivo software in facilitating data management and preparing for data analysis.

So many of the tools that have been developed for data visualization focus on data that are in spreadsheet format, especially data that are number-heavy.  For qualitative research, numerical data may not be the primary focus, or the numerical data may be difficult to visualize for other reasons.  This workshop will explore some of the complications of trying to visualize qualitative data, walking through examples of different types of qualitative data projects and the visualizations that have been produced from those projects.  The workshop will include recommendations for tools that may be useful, but we will focus more on the process of finding the visual elements of a qualitative data project than on a specific software application.
