All are welcome to register and attend the Symposium on Friday, October 5, 2018 from 8:30 am to 3:00 pm.

The Symposium will be in 2 sessions. The morning session will include keynote addresses from Rising Tide’s Dr. Rob Davies and IUPUI’s Dr. Jason M. Kelly, as well as a panel discussion featuring all Rising Tide performers and contributors. The panel will collectively address how the arts and humanities best synergize with sciences to catalyze environmental sustainability by describing the evolution of their work and detailing best practices for art-science collaboration. The afternoon session will allow participations to workshop interdisciplinary, Rising Tide-like projects.

Crossroads IUB is presented by the Integrated Program in the Environment (IPE), Environmental Resilience Institute, Jacobs School of Music, Arts and Humanities Council, and IU Cinema. The event is made possible through a New Frontiers Grant from the IU Office of the Vice President for Research.

The Integrated Program in the Environment (IPE) is the forefront of innovation in environmental studies at IU Bloomington, as outlined in the New Academic Directions report. IPE is the first place to discover what IUB offers in academics, research, creative activities and organizations focused on the environment. IPE serves under the Office of the Provost and is jointly administered by the School of Public and Environmental Affairs, the School of Public Health, and the College of Arts and Sciences.

Open Data and Open Government: A Workshop

View the original article.

The Center for International Media Law and Policy Studies at Indiana University Bloomington will hold a free daylong workshop March 17 in Indianapolis on access to information.

“Letting the Sunshine IN: An Open Data and Open Government Workshop” is open to anyone interested in open government and open data, including journalists, civic activists and neighborhood association members, said Anthony Fargo, director of the Center for International Media Law and Policy Studies and a co-organizer of the event.

The workshop will be in the ballroom of University Tower, 911 W. North St., on the IUPUI campus.

“The strength of our open government laws is that they apply to everyone, not just journalists or public officials,” said Fargo, an associate professor in The Media School at IU Bloomington. “Anyone at any time may need to gain access to records held by a government agency or attend a meeting of a public body, so all of us have a stake in learning how effective our access laws are.”

The workshop will take place during Sunshine Week, an annual national observance that highlights the importance of open government. Co-sponsors include the IndyPro Chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists and the Indiana Coalition for Open Government. Fargo and co-organizer Gerry Lanosga, an assistant professor in The Media School, are Indiana Coalition for Open Government board members.

Confirmed speakers at the conference include state, regional, and national journalists and open government advocates, who will participate in informational sessions about state and national access laws.

The workshop will close with a hands-on session on how to request data and metadata from public agencies. Experts will guide attendees in submitting actual requests to state agencies for information about their data sets. Participants should bring a laptop computer or other WiFi-capable device.

Lanosga said the goal is to launch an open online catalog of state data sets.

“We know that one of the key barriers to opening public data is lack of knowledge about the range of data that state agencies maintain,” he said. “This effort will go a long way to eliminating the unknowns about state data sets and make it easier for journalists and others in the public to request them.”

The workshop is made possible by a gift to the Center for International Media Law and Policy Studies from IU journalism alumna Barbara Restle. It is free to pre-registered participants and includes breakfast, lunch, and parking. Visitor parking is available in the North Street and Vermont Street parking garages and the Hine Hall Tower Garage.

Although there is no charge to attend the workshop, attendance is limited, and advance registration is required. The registration deadline is 5 p.m. March 12.

IAHI to host grant-writing workshop for faculty

Dr. Jason Kelly, IAHI Director

Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis faculty can learn about writing and submitting applications for the IUPUI Arts and Humanities Institute Grant Program from peers and Dr. Jason M. Kelly, the institute’s director, during a free workshop on August 31st.

The IAHI grant program supports campuswide attainment of excellence in research and creative activity in the arts and humanities. This activity can impact people’s lives not only on campus, but throughout Indianapolis and the state in the forms of new scholarship and cultural exhibits.

“The grant program is designed to enhance the research and creative-activity mission of IUPUI by supporting research projects and scholarly activities that are conducted by arts and humanities faculty,” he said. “The program is intended to stimulate existing and new research and creative activity and to support faculty in becoming competitive in securing external funding and sponsorship.”

Grants range in size from $500 to support travel to $30,000 to support research projects and scholarly activities conducted by a team of two or more faculty.

The workshop is scheduled from noon to 1:30 p.m. at the IUPUI Arts and Humanities Institute, University Library Room 4115P, 755 W. Michigan St.

Information will include guidelines on applying for the grant program, including how to apply, deadlines and scope of projects, best practices for grant writing that are relatable to other funding agencies’ grants, and a Q&A session with Dr. Kelly.

Workshop registration can be completed online. The original press release for this event can be found at the IU Newsroom.

The core of Dr. Tim’s research takes up questions of equity in higher education and the larger society. Most recently he has been appointed to the design team for Truth Racial Healing & Transformation, a W.K. Kellogg Foundation multiyear Initiative.
