PREPARE YOUR DATA FOR UPLOAD TO A GENERAL REPOSITORY

Thursday, October 10,

 

3:00–4:30 PM • Digital Scholarship Lab

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.

H.G. Adler: A Life in Many Worlds @ B-342 Wells Hall
Oct 10 @ 5:30 pm

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.

C4I Lecture–Megan Halpern @ Spartan Room at International Ctr.
Oct 11 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm
C4I Lecture--Megan Halpern @ Spartan Room at International Ctr. | East Lansing | Michigan | United States

Science as Experience: A New Approach to Science Communication    

Megan Halpern draws on Dewey’s theory of aesthetic experience to develop a model that can reshape how we research, practice, and evaluate science communication. Drawing on her work in art-science collaboration and design-inspired public engagement with science and technology, Halpern illustrates three principles of her model. First, experiences are cumulative rather than transformative, second, that context shapes experiences; and third, that ultimately, audiences have agency in shaping the meanings they draw from their interactions with scientific content. Finally, Halpern offers insights into how to develop projects from an experience perspective.

Coffee and Cookies provided.

Plan to stay after the lecture for additional coffee and networking time.

Abstraction, Bare Life, and Counter-Narratives of Mobility: A lecture by Professor Robert Burgoyne @ B122 Wells Hall
Oct 11 @ 2:00 pm – 4:00 pm
Abstraction, Bare Life, and Counter-Narratives of Mobility: A lecture by Professor Robert Burgoyne @ B122 Wells Hall | East Lansing | Michigan | United States
In this presentation, Professor Robert Burgoyne considers the contrasting portrayals of refugees and mass migration in the films of Richard Mosse and Ai Weiwei as an attempt to move beyond the conventional visual rhetoric for representing the stateless population. The extraordinary black, white and grey images that comprise Mosse’s multi- part work, Incoming—recorded with a thermal camera that reads the heat emanating from the body—creates a visual record that is at once the trace of intimate biological processes and an alarming, disorienting representation of a tragedy that is both consequential to and distant from our daily lives. In contrast, Ai Weiwei’s film Human Flow depicts the practice of hospitality as a symbolic antidote to the idea of the stateless person as threat. Emphasizing the right to be “at home” anywhere in the world, Ai’s interviews with refugees attempt to facilitate what Hannah Arendt calls the “public performance of voice,” opening a space of belonging through the sharing of stories. However, the representation of stateless persons through the lens of empathy and hospitality also conveys its own forms of disempowerment and complicity. Arendt’s 1951 essay, “The Decline of the Nation-State and the End of the Rights of Man,” provides a critical touchstone for this analysis.
