Sharing your research data is a crucial step in the lifecycle of your project. Funders expect it, it’s good for your scholarly reputation, and it promotes transparency and reproducibility. But how can you share your data effectively? Choosing the right repository and making the most of its capabilities will result in better discovery and citation of your data. This workshop surveys the features of general self-service repositories, explains the requirements for data preparation, and equips participants to prepare and package their data to get the most benefit from their effort. This workshop builds on last month’s Crash Course in Research Data Management, but is not required for attendance.
WRITING YOUR DATA MANAGEMENT PLAN
Thursday, November 14, 3:00–4:30 PM • Digital Scholarship Lab
Most grant applications now require a data management plan (DMP) that describes measures
that investigators will take to manage and protect research data during a project, and how they will proactively share data at the end of a project. But DMP requirements are not always easy to understand and apply to a project. This workshop will help make sense of DMPs, survey the data management plan requirements of major funders, show how to use DMPTool, and give participants a jumpstart on writing their next data management plan. This workshop builds on Crash Course in Research Data Management, but is not required for attendance.
Peter Filkins, professor of literature, poet and translator, will discuss his biography of H.G. Adler (Prague 1910-London 1988), which recounts how Adler lived through the greatest cataclysm of the 20th century and, as survivor, then devoted his literary and scholarly career to telling the story of those who perished. Adler did this in various forms: in works of poetry, history, sociology, religion, and three major novels, which Filkins has translated from German to English.

Presented by Yelena Kalinsky & Alice Isabella Sullivan
The life of revered the 18th-century Armenian poet and musician Sayat-Nova. Portraying events in the life of the artist from childhood up to his death, the movie addresses in particular his relationships with women, including his muse. The production tells Sayat-Nova’s dramatic story by using both his poems and largely still camerawork, creating a work hailed as revolutionary by Mikhail Vartanov.
