Beyond Supply and Demand: Duke Economics Students Present 100 Years of American Women's Suffrage

Fri, 2021-04-16 15:30
Other (see event description)
West Campus

On August 18, 2020 we celebrated the centenary of the ratification of the Nineteenth Amendment and the nearly eight decades of activism that led to it.  In commemoration of this historic moment in American history, students from Duke's Fall 2019 "Women in the Economy" course examined original, archival material from Rubenstein Library to explore the complexities and strategies of the women's suffrage movement.  This research culminated in a major exhibit that tells the story of the fight for the Nineteenth Amendment. 

Join the librarians and faculty member who facilitated this project as they explore the work of these students and offer an on-camera tour of the exhibit, currently on display in the Chappell Family Gallery at Rubenstein Library. 

Please RSVP to receive a Zoom link to this program.  Free and open to the public.

CDVS Workshop: Ethics of Data Management and Sharing

Wed, 2021-04-14 13:00
Online
This workshop will explore the many different ethical issues that can arise with data management and sharing and strategies to address those issues to ensure that goals set by publishers and funders around reproducibility and reuse can be met. How are researchers expected to comply with data sharing policies and practices when they do not actually own the data or ensure disclosure protection for human participants? Likewise how can researchers ethically collect, handle, and share data from certain communities, such as Indeginous People? Topics covered will include proper consent procedures, de-identification, the impact of privacy laws on data sharing, and the application of diversity and equity principles to open science and data sharing.
