DVS Workshop: Open Workflow Tools: Open Science Framework

Wed, 2019-04-03 14:00
Wed, Apr 03, 2019
10:00 AM - 11:00 AM
Open Science is a growing movement that advocates for research to be transparent and openly available to all others for the purposes of engagement, validation, and extension. This workshop will present a brief overview of how researchers can make their workflows more transparent and open through the use of various tools. One particular tool and its features will be examined in depth - the Open Science Framework. The OSF has a variety of features that can help enable more open workflows as well as reproducible research practices.

DVS Workshop: Data Management 201: Preparing Data for Publishing

Tue, 2019-04-02 18:00
Tue, Apr 02, 2019
2:00 PM - 4:00 PM
Data management practices help researchers take care of their data throughout the entire research process from the planning phase to the end of a project when data might be shared or "published" within a repository. Building upon the foundational concepts covered in the data management 101 courses offered this year, this workshop will provide hands-on experience where participants will learn strategies for "curating" a dataset for formal sharing. Participants will identify common data issues, determine recommendations to optimize the dataset, generate metadata and documentation, and consider how these practices might be applied to their own research.

DVS Workshop: Data Management 101 for Scientists

Tue, 2019-03-19 18:00
Tue, Mar 19, 2019
2:00 PM - 4:00 PM
Scientists work with lots of data both big and small, and in many formats and systems. This workshop will introduce data management practices for scientists to consider and apply throughout the research lifecycle. Good data management practices pertaining to planning, organization, documentation, storage and backup, sharing, citation, and preservation will be presented through a sciences lens using discipline-based, concrete examples. While good general data management practices are relevant across disciplines, participants working specifically within the sciences are the intended audience for this workshop.

DVS Workshop: Adobe Illustrator for Modifying Charts and Graphs

Thu, 2019-03-07 15:00
Thu, Mar 07, 2019
10:00 AM - 12:00 PM
In this workshop, you will learn the basics of using Adobe Illustrator, the professional standard in vector graphics software, for fine-tuning charts and graphs created in other programs like Excel, Matlab and R. Many people avoid using Illustrator because of its steep learning curve, but you will see that once you know a few basic tools, it is quite easy to give all your work a consistent look, extra highlights and annotations, and that professional edge. There are no prerequisites - we will start with the basics.

DVS Workshop: Managing Sensitive Data

Tue, 2019-03-05 19:00
Tue, Mar 05, 2019
2:00 PM - 4:00 PM
In the course of your research you may collect, interact with or analyze data that are considered "sensitive." In this workshop we will examine common sensitive data types, how Duke's IRB and Information Technology Security Office (ITSO) expects you to protect that data throughout your project's lifecycle and the resources available to you for sensitive data storage and analysis, data de-identification, and data archiving and sharing.

Screen/Society--"The Wandering Soap Opera" (2019) | Raul Ruiz | Triangle Premiere

Tue, 2019-03-05 00:00
Mon, Mar 04, 2019
7:00 PM - 7:00 PM
Film Screening: "The Wandering Soap Opera" (Raúl Ruiz, 2019, 80 min, Chile, Spanish with English subtitles, Color, DCP) In 1990, Ruiz conducted six days of acting workshops and filming in his native Chile, yielding a small wealth of 16mm footage that was never edited together until Valeria Sarmiento, Ruiz's wife and chief collaborator, found the footage in Duke University's Rubenstein Rare Book & Manuscript Library and completed the film, nearly six years after Ruiz's death in 2011. The result is a wildly inventive, episodic work of political satire born of Ruiz and Sarmiento's vision of "Chilean reality" as a grand pastiche of soap-opera tropes-in other words, that the best way to understand the political and economic realities Chileans face is to view their situation through the sublime and ridiculous prism of the telenovela. "Clearly relishing the stylistic leeway afforded by the genre-the film's prismatic color palette and exaggerated decoupage provide enough aesthetic pleasures to make one mourn yet again the absence of one of cinema's great stylists-Ruiz takes as fanciful an approach to the film's visual design as he does its object of critique." - Jordan Cronk, Film Comment

A thematic conversation on Minority Issues in China with an emphasis on the Uyghur communities

Fri, 2019-03-01 17:00
Fri, Mar 01, 2019
12:00 PM - 1:30 PM
This thematic conversation will revolve around two aspects: in the fall of 2018 Duke University Libraries acquired the personal photo album of Sir Percy Sykes, the famous British Brigadier-General and Diplomat of his travels to Kashgar in 1915. The album details the culture and topography of Kashgar, one of the centers of the large Muslim minority in China. The album will be the backdrop to the panelists' different perspectives of (Muslim) minorities in China, with a focus on the Turkic speaking Uyghurs. The current situation for Uyghurs in China is complicated with a government sanctioned suppression of Islam and the development of Internment camps. The speakers will reflect on the changes that have taken place and some of the issues currently facing Muslims in China. Each speaker will speak for 5 minutes leaving plenty of time for discussion and engagement with the audience. Panelists: Dr. Kristian Petersen(Old Dominion U.), Dr. Ralph Litzinger (Duke U.), Janice Hyeju Jeong (Duke U.) and Aydin Anwar (Duke U.) Location: The Edge Workshop Room, Perkins Library A light lunch will be served. Sponsored by Duke University Libraries, APSI, AMES Presents, DISC, and DUMESC.

Interpreting Islam in China - A book talk with Kristian Petersen

Thu, 2019-02-28 15:00
Thu, Feb 28, 2019
10:00 AM - 11:30 AM
"During the early modern period, Muslims in China began to embrace the Chinese characteristics of their heritage. Several scholar-teachers incorporated tenets from traditional Chinese education into their promotion of Islamic knowledge. As a result, some Sino-Muslims established an educational network which utilized an Islamic curriculum made up of Arabic, Persian, and Chinese works. The corpus of Chinese Islamic texts written in this system is collectively labeled the Han Kitab." Kristian Petersen is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Philosophy & Religious Studies at Old Dominion University. His research and teaching interests include Theory and Methodology in the Study of Religion, Islamic Studies, Chinese Religions, and Media Studies. He specializes on two main areas of research 1) the development of Islam in China, and 2) Muslims in Cinema. Location: Rubenstein Library room 249 Light refreshments will be served.

SSRI~ Workshop: Program Evaluation

Wed, 2019-02-27 19:00
Wed, Feb 27, 2019
2:00 PM - 4:30 PM
This workshop offers an overview of program evaluation, or the systematic investigation of the merit, worth, or significance of a program. Topics covered will include: when and why to conduct evaluation; types of evaluations; key aspects of an evaluation, including logic model development, data sources and data collection, analysis and reporting, and guiding resultant programmatic change; and tips for feasibly and effectively implementing evaluation at a program or organization. This workshop focuses on evaluation from the perspective of programs or organizations and will be of particular interest to people working in such settings who are looking to learn more about evaluation, but it is also relevant to undergraduate students, graduate students, faculty, or other researchers who are interested in evaluation and applied research.
