"Jack Balas: Against the Grain – Men, Maps, and Other Incorrections"

"Jack Balas: Against the Grain – Men, Maps, and Other Incorrections"

Monday, August 19, 2019 (All day) to Saturday, October 5, 2019 (All day)

The artist will present a lecture titled "Bro-sure: A Brief Look at the Art of Jack Balas" on Wednesday, August 28, at 7 p.m. in KAB 111. An opening reception will follow.  Balas is a Colorado-based artist specializing in figurative paintings and drawings in oil and watercolor. For the last 15 years, he has focused on depictions of the male figure, presenting them in a variety of personal and societal scenarios that project them far beyond the traditional role of portraiture. Employing painted language in the form of titles, phrases, and paragraph-stories, the works take on the strategies of annotated documents, maps and calendars, and yet by their very depiction the men found in them also take on the politics of visibility – queer visibility and male visibility in general. All events are free and open to the public.

Transparency and Integrity in Quantitative Research

Transparency and Integrity in Quantitative Research

Thursday, October 31, 2019 - 2:00 pm

Did you know that some journals or reviewers now prefer or even require that you pre-register your research study before you collect data? Or that you must have a plan to make your data public for federal grants and many journals? Transparency in research has been evolving rapidly in the past several years--you want to make sure you're caught up on the latest best practices. In this workshop, presenters will describe what pre-registration is, why it matters and how to do it (including templates and websites). They will also explain what a data management plan is and what funders are looking for in them, discuss common issues that arise (e.g., privacy) and give you several options for making your data and materials public. This multidisciplinary session will be presented by Helen Harton, Rebecca Rinehart and Ellen Neuhaus. Registration requested.
