DVS Workshop: Research Collaboration Strategies & Tools

Events - All Combined (Huginn Feed) - Tue, 2017-11-07 18:00
Tue, Nov 07, 2017
1:00 PM - 3:00 PM
Scholars increasingly work on collaborative research projects. Collaborative projects often bring together partners across disciplines, institutions, and sectors. These projects present opportunities for innovation but also raise challenges for the development of efficient and effective workflows and the management of data. This workshop will examine considerations for collaborative research and present some strategies for developing and documenting workflows as well as methods for storing and sharing data. We will also look at some tools (i.e., Box, OSF, PRDN, etc.) available at Duke that can be used to support these types of projects.

VFF: Mapping the History of the Bull City

Events - All Combined (Huginn Feed) - Fri, 2017-11-03 16:00
Fri, Nov 03, 2017
12:00 PM - 1:00 PM
In this presentation, we'll share on-going work to map 150 years of housing history in Durham for a large public history exhibit. We're developing a range of innovative approaches to historical maps, including 3D-printed maps of areas destroyed by urban renewal, using city directories to reconstruct the daily lives of oral history interviewees, and reconstructing detailed demographics using the long-form census releases. The presentation will include sharing these techniques, some practical lessons learned as well as telling some of the Bull City's story.

Film Screening: "Fire at Sea / Fuocoammare" (2016)

Events - All Combined (Huginn Feed) - Thu, 2017-11-02 23:00
Thu, Nov 02, 2017
7:00 PM - 9:00 PM
Join the Rubenstein Library's Human Rights Archive and the Duke Human Rights Center @FHI for a special film screening, photo exhibition, and post-film discussion. The first documentary to ever win the top award at the Berlin International Film Festival, "Fire at Sea" takes place in Lampedusa, a once peaceful Mediterranean island that has become a major entry point for African refugees into Europe. There, we meet Samuele, a 12-year-old boy who lives simply, climbing rocks by the shore and playing with his slingshot. Yet nearby we also witness thousands of men, women, and children trying to survive the crossing from Africa in boats that are too small for such a journey. Filmmaker Gianfranco Rose masterfully places these realities side by side, and in so doing creates a remarkable third narrative that jolts us into a new understanding of what is really happening in the Mediterranean today. The screening will be accompanied by an exhibit of works by photographer Darrin Zammit Lupi, who will participate in a post-screening discussion. Free and open to the public.

SSRI~ Workshop: Introduction to SAS Session 1: Data Management

Events - All Combined (Huginn Feed) - Thu, 2017-11-02 18:00
Thu, Nov 02, 2017
2:00 PM - 4:00 PM
This workshop offers an overview of the SAS programming language, focusing on data management activities. Session 1 includes a general overview of major SAS components (Program Editor, Log and Output) and the core concepts of SAS programming (DATA and PROC steps). It focuses on the process of importing and modifying data, including issues of importing/exporting data from other file formats, merging and concatenating data sets, and adding to or subsettting from datasets. Key SAS statements described include: PROC IMPORT, SET, MERGE, IF-THEN, and WHERE. Session 2 focuses on data analysis, including variable creation/recoding and descriptive analyses typically used in data management. Key SAS statements described include: PROC CONTENTS, PROC MEANS, and PROC FREQ. Together, these two sessions allow researchers to learn basic data management processes using the SAS statistical system.
