Race, Medicine, Authorship and the "Discovery" of Sickle Cell Disease in 1910-1911

Events - All Combined (Huginn Feed) - Wed, 2017-10-25 21:00
Wed, Oct 25, 2017
5:00 PM - 7:00 PM
The first two case histories of sickle cell disease appeared in the medical literature within three months of each other in 1910 and 1911. Dr. Savitt will discuss the very divergent stories of the first two sickle-cell patients and their physicians as told against the backdrop of a racially divided America and of a highly competitive scientific community. We see how race and class affected the discovery of SCD and how credit for two discoveries were apportioned. Savitt will also tell about his own "adventures" in tracking down the identities and backgrounds of these first two SCD patients. Dr. Savitt is a historian and professor in the Department of Bioethics and Interdisciplinary Studies in the Brody School of Medicine at East Carolina University.

Copyright and Open Access in the Humanities

All Libcal Events (Huginn Feed) - Wed, 2017-10-25 16:00
Rubenstein Library 153 (Holsti-Anderson Family Assembly Room)
West Campus

In publishing, copyright is the legal linchpin around which publishing contracts are negotiated. It forms the basis of the exchange between authors and publishers for negotiations on all sorts of terms about when, where, and how scholarship will be communicated to the world. In recent years, the possibilities for those contract terms have dramatically expanded as digital production and online access have changed the way presses publish and scholars find and interact with scholarship. 

Join us on October 25 for a lunchtime discussion about your copyright rights and new publishing options in the humanities, including open online access. We will discuss copyright ownership, contract negotiation, fair use, rights reversions, open access and more. This session will be introduced by three panelists followed by open discussion:

  • Gennifer Weisenfeld, Professor in the Department of Art, Art History, and Visual Studies and Dean of Humanities for Trinity College of Arts & Sciences
  • Cathy Rimer-Surles, Assistant Director for Contracts and Intellectual Property for Duke University Press
  • David Hansen, Director of Copyright and Scholarly Communication for Duke University Libraries

Lunch will be provided. Please register at the link below so we have an accurate count for food and seats.
