Copyright and Fair Use in Digital Publishing [Digital Publishing Workshop]

Thursday, October 19, 10:30 AM
Bostock 121 (Murthy Digital Studio)
West Campus

As we've seen in previous workshops, it's easier than ever for scholars to publish their work. The ease of sharing lets us speak to broad audiences and engage in public scholarship, but it also requires attention to legal issues that govern the use and reproduction of digital materials. In this session, we will learn about those legal issues and think about how to license our own works for publication and reuse. Participants are encouraged to bring questions, problems, or examples for discussion.

Copyright and Open Access in the Humanities

Wednesday, October 25, 12:00 PM
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.

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

Wednesday, October 25, 5:00 PM
Rubenstein Library 153 (Holsti-Anderson Family Assembly Room)
West Campus

Please join us on Wednesday, October 25, at 5:00 p.m. for our next Trent History of Medicine Lecture Series event.

We are very pleased to have Todd Savitt, Ph.D., present Race, Medicine, Authorship and the ‘Discovery’ of Sickle Cell Disease in 1910-1911.

The first two case histories of sickle cell disease (SCD) appeared in the medical literature within three months of each other in 1910 and 1911. The very divergent stories of the first two sickle-cell patients and their physicians are told against the backdrop of a racially divided America and of a highly competitive scientific community. Dr. Savitt’s talk will discuss how race and class affected the discovery of SCD and how credit for the two discoveries were apportioned. Dr. Savitt will also talk about his own “adventures” in tracking down the identities and backgrounds of these first two SCD patients.

Dr. Savitt is a medical historian and professor in the Department of Bioethics and Interdisciplinary Studies in the Brody School of Medicine at East Carolina University.

The talk is free and open to the public. A light reception will follow.

Sponsored by the History of Medicine Collections in the Rubenstein Rare Book & Manuscript Library.

Using Online Tools to Build Undergraduate Research Skills [Munch & Mull]

Monday, October 30, 12:00 PM
Rubenstein Library 349 (Breedlove Conference Room)
West Campus

How can online tools improve students’ research skills? Adela Deanova, Duke doctoral candidate in Philosophy, took on that question. As a 2016-2017 Bass Instructional Fellow apprenticing with the Center for Instructional Technology (CIT), she focused on how to build archival research skills while innovating a traditional course. (Read more about Adela and the Bass OA project here: https://cit.duke.edu/blog/2016/12/innovative-teaching-undergraduate-philosophy-bass-online-apprentice-project/).

Adela used the course management tool Sakai (https://sakai.duke.edu/) and the new portfolio tool Pebble Pad (https://portfolio.duke.edu/) to create modular archival research activities for students in Professor Andrew Janiak's Gender and Philosophy course. Creating these smaller, scaffolded tasks and then providing students with a means to digitally publish their work (and instructors an easy way to evaluate that work) offers a novel approach for building students literacy in research methods and digital publishing.

Join us for a brown-bag conversation with Adela about this approach to building undergraduate students’ research skills. Light refreshments will be served. This talk, co-sponsored by CIT, is part of the Munch & Mull Digital Scholarship series.

Rights! Camera! Action! Film Screening: 'Fire at Sea / Fuocoammare' (2016)

Thursday, November 2, 7:00 PM
Other (see event description)
East Campus

Join the Duke University Libraries Department of International and Area Studies, 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.

Co-sponsored by the Department of International and Area Studies, Human Rights Archive, Forum for Scholars and Publics, Duke Human Rights Center @ FHI, and the Kenan Institute for Ethics Refugee Project.

Location: Ahmadieh Family Lecture Hall, Bay 4, Smith Warehouse

Problems in Digital Publishing: Defining and Managing Workflows [Digital Publishing Workshop]

Thursday, November 9, 10:30 AM
Bostock 121 (Murthy Digital Studio)
West Campus

Managing a digital publishing project can be overwhelming; digital tools, while helpful, aren’t necessarily going to help if it’s not clear what the challenge is. Managing content, managing people, and managing timelines are all assisted by clear workflows, appropriate tools, and documentation. We’ll look at different needs and tools for coordinating digital publishing workflows, with specific attention to cross-platform integration (Google Drive, Box, etc) and the ease of adapting their affordances to common parts of the digital scholarship lifecycle.
