MPHA Members,

MPHA is proud to be a co-sponsor of these Endangered Data Week events! Please read below for registration for the February 21 panel discussion, and the February 22 WebEx workshop.

Endangered Data Week 2019 Events

Register online now for two informative events about endangered data.

We live in a world where both an overabundance and a paucity of data coexist, and members of vulnerable populations (such as undocumented immigrants, prisoners, and transgender folks) can be at risk from either end of this spectrum. Too much data can dangerously reveal someone’s status or identity, and an absence of data can undercut the creation of infrastructure required to support a group’s needs. 

Endangered DataData Ethics, and ‘Vulnerable’ Populations 
Thursday, February 21, 2019 | 2:30 to 4:00 p.m.
Wilson Library, Research Collaboration Studio
Scholars from across the University consider endangered data from diverse perspectives. Panelists include Filiberto Nolasco Gomez, Editor of Workday Minnesota/Labor Education Service; Lars Mackenzie, doctoral candidate, Department of Gender, Women, and Sexuality Studies; and Christopher Uggen, Regents Professor and Distinguished McKnight Professor of Sociology and Law, Fellow of the American Society of Criminology.

Requesting Government Information: FOIA for Scholarship and Publication

Friday, February 22, 2019 | 1:00 to 2:30 p.m.
Wilson Library, Research Collaboration Studio
This workshop, led by investigative reporter Filiberto Nolasco Gomez, will introduce participants to methods for submitting effective Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests for government data and documents.

About Endangered Data Week

Endangered Data Week is an international event sponsored by the Digital Library Federation. It is a collaborative effort coordinated across campuses, nonprofits, libraries, citizen science initiatives, and cultural heritage institutions. Its goal is to shed light on public datasets that are in danger of being deleted, repressed, mishandled, or lost.

About the Event Sponsors
This event was organized by the Library Resources for Transgender Topics Working Group. These events are co-sponsored by the University Libraries, the Digital Arts, Sciences, & Humanities (DASH) Program, the Tretter Collection in GLBT Studies, Labor Education Service, IPUMS, and the Minnesota Public Health Association (MPHA).
