DVS Workshop: Building Blocks for Reproducibility: The TIER Protocol

Wed, 2018-11-14 15:00
Wed, Nov 14, 2018
10:00 AM - 11:00 AM
In response to a growing focus on the importance of reproducibility, replication, and transparency in the research endeavor, scholars are adapting their practices and learning new skills and tools. DVS is offering a workshop series that will introduce the concepts, practices and tools that will help increase the reproducibility of your work. This workshop will introduce the TIER Protocol, which outlines a specification and process for maintaining well-organized documentation and producing more reproducible research projects. An example of using the TIER Protocol in conjunction with the Open Science Framework will also be presented.

SSRI~ Workshop: Effective Survey Design for Online, Paper, and Mixed-Mode Questionnaires

Tue, 2018-11-13 20:00
Tue, Nov 13, 2018
3:00 PM - 5:00 PM
This workshop examines questionnaire design for online and paper questionnaires, such as screen layout and appearance, the use of images, and other aspects of the user interface which affect the accuracy of survey results. This course does not include programming, but focuses on the conceptual issues and considerations underpinning questionnaire design for online and paper designs. It also considers the design issues involved in combing such modes can be combined with other data collection modes, i.e., in-person or telephone.

SSRI~ Workshop: Using Excel to organize and analyze information and data and to present findings

Tue, 2018-11-13 20:00
Tue, Nov 13, 2018
3:00 PM - 5:00 PM
This workshop provides an overview of ways Excel can be used to structure and even analyze data and to create presentations. It starts with examining basic tools and functions in Excel (including ways that Excel can be used to manage textual data, to combine or divide data cells and sources, and to perform calculations such as sum, average, minimum, and maximum). It then proceeds to an overview of how to sort and transpose data and create graphs and tables. Finally, it reviews how to perform basic statistical operations, including counts, frequencies, and even simple linear regressions, in Excel. Registration required; please click "more information" to access the registration form.

DVS Workshop: Tidying hierarchical data from the web with Professor Colin Rundel

Tue, 2018-11-13 15:00
Tue, Nov 13, 2018
10:00 AM - 12:00 PM
Gathering data from the web presents unique challenges to the researcher. Only rarely is the data we need available as a tidy rectangle that can be easily imported and directly analyzed. During this workshop we will discuss some of the common data formats (e.g. json, xml) and data sources (e.g. APIs, web scraping) as well as the tools / packages / best practices for ingesting these data using the R programming language.

VFF: Collaborative 3D Interactions and Their Application on Virtual, Augmented and Mixed Reality Interfaces

Fri, 2018-11-09 17:00
Fri, Nov 09, 2018
12:00 PM - 1:00 PM
Spatial object manipulation is one of the most common tasks in 3D environments. The intangibility of the virtual requires the use of 3D user interfaces for robust interactions. One alternative towards efficient 3D manipulations is to share the work to solve the task collaboratively. A collaborative environment provides more than one individual perspectives of the scene, which may also include shared and personal viewpoints. However, teamwork involves considerable negotiations and, as team members vary, team strategies and task-fulfillment processes also change. Our goal is to investigate collaboration in group work, identify the aspects of effective cooperative interactions and design 3D user interactions that enhance the team capability to solve complex manipulation tasks in virtual environments. First, we designed an interaction model to support simultaneous 3D manipulations in virtual and augmented reality scenarios and evaluated group performance and behavior in symmetric collaboration, where the team has the same interaction and visualization interface. After, we investigate asymmetric group interactions, integrating our symmetric collaborative solutions. This research contributes to the definition of a model for the design of collaborative 3D user interfaces flexible to work in multiple immersion scenarios. Furthermore, we present a series of studies that investigate the application of collaborative 3D interactions on Virtual, Augmented and Mixed Reality scenarios.

Fri, Nov 09, 2018
12:00 PM - 1:00 PM
This panel will offer a conversation on the role of women in the public sphere in contemporary Turkey. Turkey, a country of nearly 80 million, offers a case study on the role of Islam, multi-culturalism, minorities, diversity and the role(s) of women within these contexts. Despite turmoil in the country and the Middle East region more broadly, women in Turkey continue to play a vital role in the public sphere. Panelists: miriam cooke, Meyda Yegenoglu, Ebru Nihan Celkan Moderators: Heidi Madden and Sean Swanick Sponsors: Trent Foundation, Duke Libraries, Laertes Press, and Duke Middle East Studies Center

DVS Workshop: Finding a Home for Your Data: An Introduction to Archives & Repositories

Thu, 2018-11-08 18:00
Thu, Nov 08, 2018
1:00 PM - 3:00 PM
Publishing and preserving research data within a trusted repository helps researchers comply with funder and journal data sharing policies, supports the discovery of and access to data, and can result in more visibility and higher impact for research projects. This workshop will provide an overview of the different types of repositories and the overall role of repositories within the data sharing landscape. Key repositories in various disciplines will be explored and attendees will learn about resources for locating and assessing repositories. Attendees will also have an opportunity to locate appropriate repositories for their own research.

Theater and Politics in Contemporary Istanbul

Thu, 2018-11-08 17:00
Thu, Nov 08, 2018
12:00 PM - 1:15 PM
Speakers will present their experiences in their small theatre collective BuluTiyatro within the context of recent political history in Turkey. Based on their very own encounters, struggles, challenges, dreams and frustrations, inspirations and silences in Istanbul and Turkey, they will reflect upon and reconsider the notions of commons, urban transformation, the relationship between art and politics, interdisciplinarity and methodology (in both their work in theatre and elsewhere), and the political history of Turkey. This event is co-sponsored by the Forum for Scholars and Publics and is part of the series, Engaged Theatre and Contemporary Politics in Turkey | November 5-9, 2018, sponsored by the Duke University Middle East Studies Center and Duke University Libraries (with support from a Trent Foundation Grant). A light lunch will be served.

Lost Stages and Words: A Historical Perspective of Ottoman and Turkish Theater

Wed, 2018-11-07 17:00
Wed, Nov 07, 2018
12:00 PM - 1:00 PM
The speakers will provide a historical overview of the development and changes that have occurred within Ottoman and Turkish theater from the late 19th century to the present. The changes that have occurred since the founding of the Turkish Republic in 1923 are profound. While much literature delves into the politics, demographic shifts and transfers, the power of theatre is often neglected. Thus, how do theatre and history help each other to remember and construct experience? How have different memories, historiographies, and actors clashed in recent history? How has Istanbul, as the center of power and cosmopolitanism, itself become an arena of struggle? Indeed, since the 1990s Turkish theatre has witnessed a rise in independent companies and playhouses, the rebirth of the theatre scene in Istanbul/Turkey with new playwrights, new plays and new techniques. However, this is not without its struggles as theatre, much like literature is often seen by particular governments as subversive. The speakers will contextualize these issues within the context of struggles in today's Turkey.
