On the Digital Archive and Its Uses for Japanese Humanities

February 13, 2018, 2:00pm
Registration is unavailable.
This collaborative workshop, co-sponsored by the Art Research Center of Ritsumeikan University and the University of California, Berkeley, will examine the possibilities for new digital technologies and platforms to allow for collaboration within the humanities. Presentations will introduce collaborative projects already underway at both Ritsumeikan University in Kyoto, Japan and at the University of California, Berkeley and we will explore the promise of transnational collaboration to provide students access to immersive, research-based learning.

Algorithmic Bias in Search and Research

April 18, 2018, 4:00pm
Algorithms shape our everyday access to information, defining what we can and can not find online. Safiya Umoja Noble's (USC) forthcoming book Algorithms of Oppression explores the algorithms that form the backbone for services like Google and Facebook, and the ways in which these algorithms reinforce racist views and encode gender discrimination. As commercial platforms increasingly control how scholars, as well as the general public, access information, it's critical for our students to consider the ways in which these tools are anything but neutral.

Building Research Eminence in the Physical Sciences at Berkeley

April 10, 2018, 12:00pm
The physical sciences at Berkeley were built to the highest stature in the first half of the twentieth century through an ad-hoc process driven by several key intellectual leaders among the faculty. Some of the most important factors were the strong institutional interests of these faculty leaders, enablement by the administration, the establishment of the Board of Research, chartering of formal roles for the faculty through the Berkeley Revolution of 1919, the intellectual styles of Gilbert Lewis and Ernest Lawrence in particular, approaches to building that reached across the individual disciplines, identification and assessment of the most promising faculty prospects by leading researchers themselves, and the multidisciplinary activities and opportunities afforded by Lawrence’s laboratory as it grew.
