VFF: Seeing cluster constellations in data point clouds

Friday, January 25, 12:00 PM
LSRC D106
Exploratory discrimination and classification is often the first task in data analysis, leading to new probes and discoveries. We present unsupervised cluster results, by our new classification algorithm named sparse dual of the density peaks (SD-DP), on several data sets, including benchmark data for testing and real-world data for exploratory investigation. The real-world data include color images, cells via gene expressions, English words in vector representation, and scientific articles. The latter data are collected over the Internet with KIWI, a tool we developed for theme-specific bibliographic search and survey for novice and expert researchers. We also introduce a couple of perspective ways for visual understanding, interpretation, and appreciation of cluster configurations.

VFF: Quantifying Representation in Women's Magazines

Friday, February 1, 12:00 PM
LSRC D106
An undergraduate Data+ team (Alexis Malone, Statistical Science '19; Sandra Luksic, Philosophy '20; and Nathan Liang, Psychology '21) studied how women are represented in women's magazines. They used automated facial recognitition programs, text mining and analysis, and custom-made sentiment dictionaries. This project touched on digital humanities themes such as quantifying cultural phenomena, merging feminist theory with data science, data visualization and storytelling, and the limitations of computer science. The team will speak about overcoming technical challenges and their experiences using resources inside and outside Duke.

Juan E. Méndez Human Rights Book Award: María McFarland Sánchez-Moreno

Tuesday, February 26, 5:00 PM
Other (see event description)
East Campus

Location: Ahmadieh Family Lecture Hall, Smith Warehouse Bay 4, C105. (See campus map.)


Duke University has named María McFarland Sánchez-Moreno’s book, There Are No Dead Here: A Story of Murder and Denial in Colombia (Nation Books, 2018) as the winner of the 2018 Juan E. Méndez Book Award for Human Rights in Latin America. McFarland will visit Duke University on February 26, 2019, to receive the award and discuss her book.

There Are No Dead Here is a deep dive into key human rights cases that exposed the murderous nexus between right-wing paramilitaries, drug lords, and Colombia’s military and political establishment. Through dogged reporting, in part as a Human Rights Watch researcher, McFarland unravels the links that led to the murders of Colombian rights investigators by powerful interests that reached as high as military leadership and even the Colombian presidency.

This award honors the leadership of Juan E. Méndez, a human rights champion who has devoted his life to the defense of human rights. First awarded in 2008, this award selects among the best current non-fiction books published in English on human rights, democracy, and social justice in contemporary Latin America.

Co-sponsored by the Human Rights Archive at the Rubenstein Library, Duke Human Rights Center @ FHI, and the Center for Latin American and Caribbean Studies.

Rubenstein Library 153 (Holsti-Anderson Family Assembly Room)
West Campus

Please join us for the opening of the exhibition "Five Hundred Years of Women's Work: The Lisa Unger Baskin Collection" which will feature collector and exhibit co-curator Lisa Unger Baskin in conversation with Naomi Nelson.

Exhibition Preview at 5:00 p.m., Mary Duke Biddle Room, Stone Family Gallery & Trent History of Medicine Room
Reception at 5:30 p.m., Holsti-Anderson Family Assembly Room
Program: A Conversation with Lisa Unger Baskin at 6:00 p.m., Holsti-Anderson Family Assembly Room
Featuring Naomi Nelson, Associate University Librarian and Director, Rubenstein Library, with introductory remarks by Edward Balleisen,
Vice Provost for Interdisciplinary Studies

Women’s work. The phrase usually conjures up domestic duties or occupations largely associated with women—such as teaching, nursing, or housekeeping. The Lisa Unger Baskin Collection upends those associations. By bringing together materials from across the centuries, Baskin reveals what has been hidden—that Western women have long pursued a startling range of careers and vocations and that through their work they have supported themselves, their families, and the causes they believed in. The Lisa Unger Baskin Collection is now part of Duke’s Sallie Bingham Center for Women’s History and Culture. This exhibition provides a first glimpse of the diversity and depth of the collection, revealing the lives of women both famous and forgotten and recognizing their accomplishments.

Interpreting Islam in China - A book talk with Kristian Petersen

Thursday, February 28, 10:00 AM
Rubenstein Library Carpenter Conference Room 249
"During the early modern period, Muslims in China began to embrace the Chinese characteristics of their heritage. Several scholar-teachers incorporated tenets from traditional Chinese education into their promotion of Islamic knowledge. As a result, some Sino-Muslims established an educational network which utilized an Islamic curriculum made up of Arabic, Persian, and Chinese works. The corpus of Chinese Islamic texts written in this system is collectively labeled the Han Kitab." Kristian Petersen is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Philosophy & Religious Studies at Old Dominion University. His research and teaching interests include Theory and Methodology in the Study of Religion, Islamic Studies, Chinese Religions, and Media Studies. He specializes on two main areas of research 1) the development of Islam in China, and 2) Muslims in Cinema. Location: Rubenstein Library room 249 Light refreshments will be served.

Exhibit Reception & Artist Talk: To Survive on this Shore

Thursday, February 28, 5:00 PM
Other (see event description)
East Campus

NOTE: This event takes place at the Center for Documentary Studies. Please see their website for directions.

Join us for a special reception and artist's talk as we celebrate a new photography exhibit, To Survive on This Shore: Photographs and Interviews with Transgender and Gender Nonconforming Older Adults.

Representations of older transgender people are nearly absent from our culture and those that do exist are often one-dimensional. For over five years, photographer Jess T. Dugan and social worker Vanessa Fabbre traveled throughout the United States creating the images in this exhibit. Seeking subjects whose lived experiences exist within the complex intersections of gender identity, age, race, ethnicity, sexuality, socioeconomic class, and geographic location, they traveled from coast to coast, to big cities and small towns, documenting the life stories of this important but largely underrepresented group of older adults.

The exhibit will be on display in the Rubenstein Library Photography Gallery February 23 - June 2, 2019.

A thematic conversation on Minority Issues in China with an emphasis on the Uyghur communities

Friday, March 1, 12:00 PM
Bostock Library - The Edge Workshop Room
First Floor
This thematic conversation will revolve around two aspects: in the fall of 2018 Duke University Libraries acquired the personal photo album of Sir Percy Sykes, the famous British Brigadier-General and Diplomat of his travels to Kashgar in 1915. The album details the culture and topography of Kashgar, one of the centers of the large Muslim minority in China. The album will be the backdrop to the panelists' different perspectives of (Muslim) minorities in China, with a focus on the Turkic speaking Uyghurs. The current situation for Uyghurs in China is complicated with a government sanctioned suppression of Islam and the development of Internment camps. The speakers will reflect on the changes that have taken place and some of the issues currently facing Muslims in China. Each speaker will speak for 5 minutes leaving plenty of time for discussion and engagement with the audience. Panelists: Dr. Kristian Petersen(Old Dominion U.), Dr. Ralph Litzinger (Duke U.), Janice Hyeju Jeong (Duke U.) and Aydin Anwar (Duke U.) Location: The Edge Workshop Room, Perkins Library A light lunch will be served. Sponsored by Duke University Libraries, APSI, AMES Presents, DISC, and DUMESC.

Screen/Society--"The Wandering Soap Opera" (2017) | Raul Ruiz | Triangle Premiere

Monday, March 4, 7:00 PM
Rubenstein Arts Center, Film Theater
"The Wandering Soap Opera" (Raúl Ruiz, 2017, 80 min, Chile, Spanish with English subtitles, Color, DCP) In 1990, Ruiz conducted six days of acting workshops and filming in his native Chile, yielding a small wealth of 16mm footage that was never edited together until Valeria Sarmiento, Ruiz's wife and chief collaborator, found the footage in Duke University's Rubenstein Rare Book & Manuscript Library and completed the film, nearly six years after Ruiz's death in 2011. The result is a wildly inventive, episodic work of political satire born of Ruiz and Sarmiento's vision of "Chilean reality" as a grand pastiche of soap-opera tropes-in other words, that the best way to understand the political and economic realities Chileans face is to view their situation through the sublime and ridiculous prism of the telenovela. "Clearly relishing the stylistic leeway afforded by the genre-the film's prismatic color palette and exaggerated decoupage provide enough aesthetic pleasures to make one mourn yet again the absence of one of cinema's great stylists-Ruiz takes as fanciful an approach to the film's visual design as he does its object of critique." - Jordan Cronk, Film Comment

Data Management 201: Preparing Data for Publishing

Tuesday, April 2, 2:00 PM
Bostock 127 (The Edge Workshop Room)
West Campus

Data management practices help researchers take care of their data throughout the entire research process from the planning phase to the end of a project when data might be shared or “published” within a repository. Building upon the foundational concepts covered in the data management 101 courses offered this year, this workshop will provide hands-on experience where participants will learn strategies for “curating” a dataset for formal sharing. Participants will identify common data issues, determine recommendations to optimize the dataset, generate metadata and documentation, and consider how these practices might be applied to their own research.

Participants are not required to have taken the Data Management 101 course (although it is recommended). Please bring a laptop to participate fully in the workshop. This workshop is eligible for 2 hours of Graduate School RCR credits.

The content of the workshop may be recorded. Cameras will capture the instructor station and the display screen. Ambient audio, including verbal audience participation, will be included on the recording. Registration for the workshop indicates consent. If you are uncomfortable with a recording being published please contact the instructor at anytime prior to the conclusion of the workshop.
