Exploring Dracula Criticism, Amy Barlow Dec 2019

Exploring Dracula Criticism, Amy Barlow

New England Library Instruction Group

First year students in Professor Maureen Reddy's Honors course, Dracula: The Monster (Always!) Returns, were expected to gain an understanding of the critical conversation that surrounds Bram Stoker’s Dracula. As the librarian for English, I met with Professor Reddy’s class to teach students how to search for literary criticism. This semester I developed a lesson that integrated active learning and the concept of “Searching as Strategic Exploration” from the ACRL Framework for Information Literacy. I was interested specifically in helping students to “recognize the value of browsing and other serendipitous methods of information gathering.” The lesson anticipated ...

Data Gathering Kickoff Lesson For Consulting Project, Samantha Porter, Stephanie Farne

New England Library Instruction Group

This is a one-shot instruction session taught to upperclassmen in a Strategic Management Course working on a group mock-consulting project. We introduce them to potential sources of information for the secondary research component of their project including company, industry and market research resources. There are three parts to the lesson plan: 1) a beach ball activity (which we learned about at an ACRL NEC Annual Conference 2018) to introduce them to different information source types, including discussion of information literacy principles; 2) a brief introduction to the database sources; and 3) a group workshop activity.

Saving Software And Using Emulation To Reproduce Computationally Dependent Research Results, Euan Cochrane, Limor Peer, Ethan Gates, Seth Anderson Dec 2019

Saving Software And Using Emulation To Reproduce Computationally Dependent Research Results, Euan Cochrane, Limor Peer, Ethan Gates, Seth Anderson

Yale Day of Data

Using digital data necessarily involves software. How do institutions think about software in the context of the long-term usability of their data assets? How do they address usability challenges uniquely posed by software such as, license restrictions, legacy software, code rot, and dependencies? These questions are germane to the agenda set forth by the FAIR principles. At Yale University, a team in the Library is looking into the application of a novel approach to emulation as a potential solution. In this presentation, we will outline the work of the Emulation as a Service Infrastructure (EaaSI) program, discuss our plans for ...

Gender Differences Are Disappearing: Attitudes On Sex Trafficking Tactics And Rape Victimization Nov 2019

Gender Differences Are Disappearing: Attitudes On Sex Trafficking Tactics And Rape Victimization

Symposium of Student Scholars

Commercial sexual exploitation by force, fraud, and coercion are tactics used by sex traffickers. Although sex trafficking is an ongoing, pervasive problem, there is no known research on gender differences regarding knowledge and attitudes about sex trafficking tactics and the perception of these women and girls as victims of rape. Thus, the purpose of this study was to compare male and female college students' knowledge and attitudes regarding sex trafficking tactics and their beliefs about whether these individuals are rape victims. Consistent with rape myth acceptance research on gender (Russell & Hand, 2017), we hypothesized that there may be gender differences ...


A Study On Social Media's Influence Upon The Evolution Of Slang Nov 2019

A Study On Social Media's Influence Upon The Evolution Of Slang

Symposium of Student Scholars

As social media platforms become increasingly prevalent in our society, they have begun to heavily influence the ways in which we communicate with each other. Particularly fascinating is the effect of social media sites and texting upon slang, which has evolved significantly over the past few decades. Therefore, I am researching why slang is so prevalent in our society, as well as how and why it has changed as a result of social media. My project also explores the phenomena of how online platforms have influenced the connotations of certain words so that they later become slang terms. Because both ...


Sociolinguistic Analysis Of Asian American English Nov 2019

Sociolinguistic Analysis Of Asian American English

Symposium of Student Scholars

According to the United Stated Census Bureau, the population of Asians in the United States has increased from 12 million in 2005 to 17 million in 2016. As populations of minority races in the U.S. grow, so does the representation of them in popular culture and mass media. From ABC’s TV show Fresh Off the Boat to the rising generation of Asian American Youtubers, a wave of Asian American linguistic and languaging presence in today’s entertainment is higher than ever before. In my presentation, I will discuss a close analysis of sociolinguistics connected to these representations spoken ...


How Unique Is Milwaukee’S 53206? An Examination Of Disaggregated Socioeconomic Characteristics Across The City And Beyond, Scott W. Hegerty Nov 2019

How Unique Is Milwaukee’S 53206? An Examination Of Disaggregated Socioeconomic Characteristics Across The City And Beyond, Scott W. Hegerty

Faculty Research and Creative Activities Symposium

Milwaukee’s 53206 ZIP code, located on the city’s near North Side, has drawn considerable attention for its poverty and incarceration rates, as well as for its large proportion of vacant properties. As a result, it has been the subject of academic studies, considerable news reporting, and even a documentary; it has benefited from targeted policies at the city level. Targeting specific ZIP codes, rather than other types of geographic area can raise certain issues, however. In particular, these areas were created for mail delivery rather than to facilitate socieoeconomic analysis, and they often aggregate diverse urban areas that ...


Gis And Cartography Supporting Neiu, Erick Howenstine Nov 2019

Gis And Cartography Supporting Neiu, Erick Howenstine

Faculty Research and Creative Activities Symposium

Geographers study place and location and these are critical to the success of an institution like ours with a (mainly) commuting student body. Our employees also often travel long distances to campus, and our 80,000 alumni are dispersed around the world but mainly still reside in the Chicago region. Many classes use the City and surrounding areas for field trips, internships and more. Our satellite campuses – El Centro, CCICS, Lake County College – add an additional dimension to our spatial challenges and opportunities. Underlying all this is a mosaic of neighborhoods, distinct socioeconomic and demographic areas, dense transportation infrastructure, rich ...

A Public Health Approach To Uncovering The Health-Related Needs Of Library Patrons, Jennifer R. Banas, Michelle Oh

Faculty Research and Creative Activities Symposium

As libraries are re-envisioned and reborn as community centers and resource providers, what is their role in understanding and positively contributing to a given neighborhood’s social determinants of health (SDOH), particularly among vulnerable populations? To answer this question the Teen Services department of Chicago Public Library, a licensed professional counselor, and a NEIU team made up of a faculty researcher, an academic librarian, undergraduate students majoring in community health, collaborated to conduct a needs assessment. The aims of the needs assessment was as follows: 1) To uncover the most common health-related needs among community teens as perceived by Teen ...


Which Sectors Hold The Key To India's Future Economic Growth?, Hardik A. Marfatia Nov 2019

Which Sectors Hold The Key To India's Future Economic Growth?, Hardik A. Marfatia

Faculty Research and Creative Activities Symposium

This paper explores sectors that hold the key to India's future economic growth. The forecasts of economic growth from an autoregressive distributed lag model with stock market sectoral indices are analyzed against the benchmark autoregressive model forecasts across several forecast horizons. Results show that the information from sectoral indices improves forecasts of economic growth. However, the forecast superiority is not uniform across sectors and horizons. Auto, consumers' spending, material, metal, oil and gas, and realty sectors provide the most forecasting gains. In contrast, bankex, capital goods, finance, and industrial sectors provide superior forecasts only at horizons above one year ...


Decolonizing The Barrio: The Spatial Politics Of Culture In Chicago’S Paseo Boricua, Dennis Grammenos Nov 2019

Decolonizing The Barrio: The Spatial Politics Of Culture In Chicago’S Paseo Boricua, Dennis Grammenos

Faculty Research and Creative Activities Symposium

In the current neoliberal climate that has stoked an intense intercity competition for internationally footloose capital, many cities with global aspirations are encouraging urban redevelopment projects that brand and promote heterogeneous cultural enclaves as destinations for leisure and tourism consumption. Oftentimes, such enclaves emerge as "ethnoscapes" that ostensibly express the cultural identity of its residents, usually immigrant populations. In Chicago, municipal policies aimed at enhancing a visitor economy have been instrumental in the creation of the Paseo Boricua, a Puerto Rican "ethnoscape". This study examines the intersection of Chicago's urban redevelopment policies and the spatial politics of culture that ...


Children’S Cognitive Reflection Predicts Conceptual Understanding In Science And Mathematics, Andrew Young Nov 2019

Children’S Cognitive Reflection Predicts Conceptual Understanding In Science And Mathematics, Andrew Young

Faculty Research and Creative Activities Symposium

The Cognitive Reflection Test (CRT; Frederick, 2005) is the dominant measure of adult individual differences in analytic vs. intuitive cognitive style. The task was designed to measure a person's tendency to override and inhibit an intuitive response that is incorrect and engage in deliberate reflection that leads to a correct response. The CRT is a meaningful predictor of a diverse range of adult psychological and behavioral outcomes, including conceptual change in science and math learning (Shtulman & McCallum, 2014; Gómez-Chacón et al., 2014). The present research employed a newly developed CRT for children, the CRT-D (Young et al., 2018), to examine the ...


Conjunction Function: How Grammatical Categories Are Organized In Language, Ariana Bancu Nov 2019

Conjunction Function: How Grammatical Categories Are Organized In Language, Ariana Bancu

Faculty Research and Creative Activities Symposium

The purpose of my talk is to discuss how conjunctions function in different languages and to show how they contribute to a better understanding of the implicit knowledge we have as speakers of a language. In English, coordinating conjunctions such as ‘and’ can link a diverse range of grammatical categories: noun phrases (NP), verb phrases (VP), adjective and adverb phrases (AP), clauses, etc. Cross-linguistically, however, there are many languages that have category specific coordinating conjunctions, and such languages show that the function of coordinating conjunctions extends beyond organizing discourse. Matras (1996:178), for example, points out that “(…) coordinating conjunctions assume ...


Addressing The Challenges Of Uncertainty Affecting Last-Mile Distribution In Disaster Relief, Robert A. Cook, Emmett Lodree Nov 2019

Addressing The Challenges Of Uncertainty Affecting Last-Mile Distribution In Disaster Relief, Robert A. Cook, Emmett Lodree

Faculty Research and Creative Activities Symposium

The study of Disaster Relief has received increasing attention for the better part of 20 years, and particularly in the wake of high-visibility storms like Hurricanes Harvey and Irma, there is little need to provide justification for the field as an area of interest. This presentation will summarize an ongoing effort to study one particular aspect of Disaster Relief, namely last-mile distribution in the face of uncertain supply. This body of work forms the bulk of my dissertation which I completed last year along with my co-author and mentor Dr. Emmett Lodree, a full Professor at the University of Alabama.


Evidentiality In The Colombian “Diálogos De Paz”: An Analysis Of Quotations And Presuppositions In Colombia’S Peace Talks, Maria Alejandra Prieto Mendoza Nov 2019

Evidentiality In The Colombian “Diálogos De Paz”: An Analysis Of Quotations And Presuppositions In Colombia’S Peace Talks, Maria Alejandra Prieto Mendoza

Faculty Research and Creative Activities Symposium

Buscar la paz con justicia social por medio del diálogo” (‘to find peace with social justice through dialogue’): was the goal that Colombia purported to achieve during its peace talks 1 . Nevertheless, this type of political discourses usually carries within it more information than the main goal their words suggest, as they can transmit a particular ideology and a hidden agenda that wants to be accepted by the audience. The problem is that, in moments of conflict, a peace dialogue can be the beacon of hope, and as a consequence, every speech that came from the “mesa de diálogo” (dialogue ...


Finding Your Way Through: Vicarious Trauma And The Qualitative Researcher, Laura Tejada, Michele Kane Nov 2019

Finding Your Way Through: Vicarious Trauma And The Qualitative Researcher, Laura Tejada, Michele Kane

Faculty Research and Creative Activities Symposium

Vicarious trauma, also known as compassion fatigue or secondary trauma, is more than a topic of study for qualitative researchers. It is a risk we run because we connect deeply with our participants and their stories while conducting qualitative research. The qualitative researchers’ connection to participant stories doesn’t end when the interview is over. We must remain intimately engaged with these stories throughout the data preparation and analysis phases of research, often over a number of years. As we are exposed again and again to the narratives of our participants, even when data is de-identified and aggregated into different ...


Effects Of A School-Based Social-Emotional And Character Development Program On Peer, Family, School, And Neighborhood Contexts: A Cluster-Randomized Controlled Trial, Naida Silverthorn, Kendra M. Lewis, Niloofar Bavarian, David L. Dubois, Alan C. Acock, Samuel Vuchinich Nov 2019

Effects Of A School-Based Social-Emotional And Character Development Program On Peer, Family, School, And Neighborhood Contexts: A Cluster-Randomized Controlled Trial, Naida Silverthorn, Kendra M. Lewis, Niloofar Bavarian, David L. Dubois, Alan C. Acock, Samuel Vuchinich

Faculty Research and Creative Activities Symposium

Methods: A matched-pair, cluster-randomized controlled trial included 1,170 students from 14, low-income, urban, Chicago Public Schools. Outcomes were assessed longitudinally for a cohort of youth followed from grades 3 to 8. Multilevel growth-curve modeling and endpoint analyses were conducted on indicators of peer, family, school, and neighborhood contexts. Results: Students in PA schools had slower rates of decline and higher end-point scores than students in non-PA schools across all of the contexts examined. For example, impacts were observed for ...


Bridging The Divide Between Gen. X And Millennials, Floyd Miley Nov 2019

Bridging The Divide Between Gen. X And Millennials, Floyd Miley

Black Issues Conference

The problems that plague the Black community are a multi-dimensional phenomenon deeply rooted in systemic racism. For 400 years, the Black experience in America has been one of subjugation, segregation, lynching, discrimination and racism. The historic Civil Rights Movement changed legislation, but it didn’t change racist attitudes or institutions.

During Donald Trump’s presidency, America has witnessed a resurgence of White supremacists’ attitudes, beliefs, values and practices towards people of color, especially Blacks. His administration supports the social, political, criminal justice and economic institutions that negatively affect the Black community. As a result, Blacks have the highest incarceration rate ...

Foundations Of Minority Leadership: Creating A Leadership Course Specifically For Our Needs, Marcelius L. Braxton, Lorneth Peters Nov 2019

Foundations Of Minority Leadership: Creating A Leadership Course Specifically For Our Needs, Marcelius L. Braxton, Lorneth Peters

Black Issues Conference

This presentation provides insight into a new hybrid, service-learning course introduced at Austin Peay State University entitled “Foundations of Minority Leadership”. With respect to leadership, individuals who are minorities often face difficulties that the majority does not have to consider. As a result, minority individuals often do not have the opportunity to address issues that would be beneficial for their mentoring/leadership needs. This presentation will highlight the structure of a course specifically for minority individuals. It will also provide some examples of how two instructors use contemporary readings such as, “Minority Leader: How to Lead From the Outside and ...


Destined For Dissonance: Unpacking The Duality Of Being Black And Christian, Christie D. Banks, Matthew K. Best, Marcus Jones Nov 2019

Destined For Dissonance: Unpacking The Duality Of Being Black And Christian, Christie D. Banks, Matthew K. Best, Marcus Jones

Black Issues Conference

Abstract: We know that the Trans- Atlantic Slave Trade is how our African ancestors became involved with Christianity, and for many this involvement was a forced tactic of bondage. Does the disconnectedness from the horrors and hypocrisy of the slave trade make you question your faith? Or has the Black Church and its role in your community been a pillar in walking out your faith? Is the injustice that brought our people to America a part of our complex Christian history? Or is being Black and Christian an oxymoron? Du Bois’ The Souls of Black Folk is as relevant a ...

International Conference on Durability of Concrete Structures

Mumbai is the financial, commercial and entertainment capital of India, facing bigger challenges in accommodating its over growing population day by day. The Mumbai City has population of 18.4 million over its 634 km2 area, ie. Almost 350 ft2/person. This enormous rise in population density has restricted the development to expand vertically. This also, results in growth of major slums, which is almost 62% of the population dwelling in slums. Subsequently, the authorities is in need of a large scaled Slum Sanitation Program, which utilize the scarcely available land for construction of Community Toilet Blocks with involvement of ...
