DUL: Low Maintenance Book Club Meeting

All Libcal Events (Huginn Feed) - Tue, 2017-02-21 23:00
Bostock 127 (The Edge Workshop Room)
West Campus

Our next book club will be on February 21st at 6:00pm in The Workshop Room  (Bostock 127) @ The Edge.  We will be  reading the novella Story of Your Life by Ted Chiang, which won the Nebula Awards' Best Novella in 1999.  More famously this is the story that the recent movie Arrival is based on!  You can find several copies of the short story collection that contains this story at our libraries, including an e-book version.  Durham County Library has a copy.

The Low Maintenance Book Club provides space for members of the Duke community to connect over reading.  Realizing how busy people are (and how much reading you probably have to do for classwork and research), we focus on quick reads.  We will read texts like short stories, graphic novels, interesting short essays, poetry, etc.  We hope you will join us for some fun and thought provoking conversations!

Book Talk: Sydney Nathans, Author of "A Mind to Stay: White Plantation, Black Homeland" (2017)

All Libcal Events (Huginn Feed) - Tue, 2017-02-21 21:00
Rubenstein 153 (Holsti-Anderson Family Assembly Room)
West Campus

A Mind to Stay CoverIn his new book, Sydney Nathans, Professor Emeritus of History at Duke, tells the rare story of people who moved from being enslaved to becoming owners of the very land they had worked in bondage, and who have held on to it from emancipation through the Civil Rights era.

The story began in 1844, when North Carolina planter Paul Cameron bought 1,600 acres near Greensboro, Alabama, and sent out 114 enslaved people to cultivate cotton and enlarge his fortune. In the 1870s, he sold the plantation to emancipated black families who worked there. 

Drawing on thousands of letters from the planter and on interviews with descendants of those who bought the land, A Mind to Stay: White Plantation, Black Homeland (Harvard, 2017) unravels how and why the planter’s former laborers purchased the site of their enslavement, kept its name as Cameron Place, and defended their homeland against challengers from the Jim Crow era to the present day.

Through the prism of a single plantation and the destiny of black families that dwelt on it for over a century and a half, A Mind to Stay brings to life a vivid cast of characters and illuminates the changing meaning of land and landowning to successive generations of rural African Americans. Those who remained fought to make their lives fully free—for themselves, for their neighbors, and for those who might someday return.

Free and open to the public. Copies of the book will be for sale at the event.

Sponsored by the Duke University Libraries, David M. Rubenstein Rare Book & Manuscript Library, and the John Hope Franklin Research Center for African and African American History and Culture.

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.
