Title of Presentation: Open Research: Making Harmful Habits History
The Workshop is an online platform where members of the public offer their own responses to artworks and other content included in the exhibition Hank Willis Thomas: All Things Being Equal... Many of the voices in the Workshop belong to Greater Cincinnatians who are Black, Indigenous, or people of color. Responses will accumulate throughout the run of the exhibition, and will remain online after the exhibition closes.
The explanatory texts that appear on the walls of the museum are customarily written by curators, who balance factors including the artist’s point of view, institutional expectations, their own training and perspective, and the need to communicate with members of the public. Most but not all of the curators who wrote the explanatory texts in Hank Willis Thomas: All Things Being Equal... were trained in practices of social critique similar to those used by the artist, and are White. The purpose of the Workshop is to create space for more voices, views and ways of speaking about art to be heard.

Session Description: Publishing Data In Repositories - August 10th from 2-3pm
The currency of academia has long been the article. However, with supplemental materials in so many formats, the nature of the scholarly output has changed dramatically. Additionally funders and journals are requiring that the evidence for the articles is also available. Repositories are an excellent venue for these additional forms of scholarly, particular the data. In this session, attendees will learn about the nature of changing publication outputs, how repositories can help provide the needed infrastructure to share data and other research outputs, and how to make a bigger impact with your scholarship through publishing in a repository.
