Scholarly Publishing: Journals, Journals Everywhere, But We Should Stop and Think

The landscape of scientific publishing has been shifting for a while but the remote research situations forced by COVID-19 brought many inadequacies of the current system into the limelight. Data management challenges, open access availability, wariness of predatory publishers and an overwhelming abundance of information avenues make publishing research more difficult than ever before. Join your colleagues across five geographically separate institutions to roleplay case studies in small group discussions to examine our choices as content creators and the value we assign to journals according to their various attributes and our own career situations. The session will be led by librarians from universities across the country. Register to receive the Zoom link for this session. University Location: 120 - Library - Main Campus. Tuesday, April 20, 2021, 9:00 AM – 10:00 AM. For more info visit libcal.uidaho.edu.

Ted Thornhill, Ph.D.: “We Want Black Students, Just Not You": How White Admissions Counselors Screen Black Prospective Students (Black Lives Matter Speaker Series)

Office of Multicultural Affairs Most historically and predominantly white institutions (HPWIs) now desire some number of Black students on their campuses. However, theoretical scholarship suggests that HPWIs’ desire for and willingness to embrace Black students is predicated on their racial palatability. Professor Thornhill will discuss his recent study which found that white admissions counselors are more responsive to deracialized and racially apolitical Black students than they are to those who reveal a commitment to antiracism and racial justice (e.g. the Black Lives Matter movement). He will conclude by considering what his findings mean for not only college admissions and higher education, but the practices of white-administered organizations more broadly. Part of the Black Lives Matters Speaker Series. Sponsored by the Office of Multicultural Affairs, the Diversity and Inclusion Certificate, and Africana Studies.

Denim Day

Violence Prevention Programs Wear Denim with a  purpose on April 28th! Why Denim? The campaign was originally triggered by a ruling by the Italian Supreme Court where a rape conviction was overturned because the justices felt that since the victim was wearing tight jeans she must have helped her rapist remove her jeans, thereby implying consent. The following day, the women in the Italian Parliament came to work wearing jeans in solidarity with the victim. Wearing Denim on April 28th shows your support for survivors of sexual violence, and that we as a community care about this issue. How to show your support Wear denim on April 28th and encourage your team to do so as well. Take a picture and post it to social media with #UIdahoDenimDay, #DenimDay2021, or #DenimWithTheDeans.
