An eloquent poet, writer and performer, Maya Angelou's life intersected with the civil rights struggle, the Harlem Writers Guild, the New Africa movement, the women's movement, and the cultural and political realignments of the 1970s and '80s. Having lived such a rich, passionate life and been a witness, as well as a participant, in some of the most profound periods of the last century, her full biography is extraordinarily rich and varied. Dr. Angelou lived not one life, but half a dozen, and yet parts of her story have fallen into obscurity. This documentary reflects on how the events of history, culture and the arts shaped her life and how she, in turn, helped shape our own worldview through her autobiographical literature and activism.

Designing Academic Figures and Posters (DVS Workshop Series)

All Libcal Events (Huginn Feed) - Tue, 2016-09-20 17:30
Bostock 023 Training Room
West Campus

Figures and other forms of visual representation can have a huge impact on the communication of research to a broader audience.  A well designed figure can summarize research, captivate audience interest, and/or explain complicated phenomena and processes.  Likewise, becoming familiar with good strategies for poster design allows researchers to take full advantage of the opportunity to network with colleagues and promote their own research.  This workshop will cover basic considerations for designing effective academic figures and posters, including use of color, layout, fonts/typography, and software choices.

For many basic charts and graphs, Excel is one of the easiest ways to create a data visualization.  Figuring out how to get Excel to produce exactly the chart you want, however, can be a bit of a headache.  In this workshop, we will learn how to create and modify many different charts within Excel, in addition to learning how PivotTables can help arrange the data in the best way for the chart we want.  We will also cover how to get the best results when taking charts out of Excel and putting them into documents, presentations, and other programs.

The Visualization Friday Forum is an informal meeting for faculty, staff and students from across the university to share their research involving the development and/or application of visualization methodologies. 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.
