Ethics of Data Management and Sharing

Wednesday, April 14, 1:00 PM
n/a

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.

This workshop (GS717.07) is eligible for 2 hours of Graduate School RCR Credits and the 200-level RCR for faculty and staff.

This event is offered virtually in accordance with Duke's Coronavirus events policies. A zoom link will be sent via email to registered participants to join the workshop.

The content of the workshop may be recorded. If you are uncomfortable with a recording being published, please contact the instructor at any time prior to the conclusion of the workshop.

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

Friday, April 16, 3:30 PM
Other (see event description)
West Campus

Last August 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 course "Women in the Economy" 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, on display now in the Jerry and Bruce Chappell Family Gallery in the Duke University Libraries.

Join librarians, along with the faculty member and students who facilitated this project, as they explore the work of this course and offer an on-camera tour of the exhibit.

Free and open to the public. Please RSVP to receive a Zoom link, which will be sent the day before the event.
