Dismantling The Knowledgeopoly: An Open Research Future, K. M. Ehrig-Page Oct 2020

Dismantling The Knowledgeopoly: An Open Research Future, K. M. Ehrig-Page

Criss Library Faculty Proceedings & Presentations

A library plays an integral part in the community because its doors are usually open to everyone, at least in non-pandemic times. However, access to education, to research or, more broadly, to knowledge is often siloed and hidden behind subscriptions so that knowledge monopolies start to grow. In “Dismantling the Knowledgeopoly: An Open Research Future”, and in celebration of October’s Open Access Week that promotes free, immediate access to peer reviewed scholarship, we will look at ways you can broaden the scope of Open Access and move towards Open Research.

The idea for this presentation arose through working in ...

Gender Identity And Pronoun Usage In Standardized Patient Encounters, Martha M. Popescu, Emily J. Noonan, Laura A. Weingartner

Undergraduate Research Events

The standardized documentation clinicians use to record evaluations of a patient are called Subjective, Objective, Assessment, and Plan (SOAP) notes. Consistent pronoun documentation and usage in these notes is especially important for affirming transgender and gender non-conforming patients as this population experiences significant health disparities linked to medical mistrust. A sample of SOAP notes (n=286) was taken from standardized patient encounters at the University of Louisville School of Medicine in 2017 (n=137) and 2018 (n=149). There were five case iterations of the standardized patient based on gender identity. The notes were coded using the software Dedoose for ...

Talking About Race In The College Classroom: An Analysis Of Facework, Katelyn Doherty

A review of research on talking about race in the college classroom revealed that scholars have focused on identifying students’ struggles and considering the impact of intense discussions have on students.
