Sun, 2018-06-17 04:00
Sun, Jun 17, 2018
All Day
The Activist Archive will displays selections from print and manuscript collections documenting the history of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC) held in the David M. Rubenstein Rare Book & Manuscript Library. SNCC was one of the key organizations of the Civil Rights Movement, and the only one organized and led by young people. Working alongside local people in the rural South, SNCC activists worked on issues like voting rights, education, economic empowerment, and the emergence of black power. The personal papers exhibited reflect the Rubenstein's commitment to collecting social movements and activism.

Contraception Crossroads: Health Workers Encounter Family Planning in Mid-20th Century Latin America

Mon, 2018-04-30 16:00
Mon, Apr 30, 2018
12:00 PM - 1:00 PM
Between the 1930s and the 1970s, health workers of different types began to embrace, slowly and selectively, the value of smaller families for all people in the region as well as to become used to new types of contraceptive technologies. What were the circumstances under which physicians, nurses, midwives, and social workers first encountered the use of birth control in Latin America? What they did do to advance and limit the use of contraception? How did they interact with birth control users? The answers to these questions help us better understand the context and the mindsets of people on the forefront of a momentous development: the normalization of family planning in the so-called Third World.

VFF: Cognitive Neuroscience Studies Behind Data Visualization Best Practices

Fri, 2018-04-13 16:00
Fri, Apr 13, 2018
12:00 PM - 1:00 PM
Death to pie charts! Maximize the data ink ratio! Uninstall all serif fonts! These are common refrains in data visualization circles, but where do they come from? In this talk, I will discuss some of the studies that inspired popular data visualization best practices, and what these studies have and have not shown. I will share some modifications to best practices that I think reflect the evidence more accurately than what is often recommended, and will discuss strategies for working together to promote data-driven techniques in the data visualization community.
