Event Image "The "New Statistics": Improving Statistical Practices to Benefit Science and the Public
3:00 PM - 4:00 PM

*WU Campus - Hatfield Library

Have you ever wondered what it means to say something is “statistically significant”? Would it surprise you to know that many professionals are nearly as confused as the general public? Natural and behavioral scientists have long relied upon the questionable practice of null hypothesis significance testing (NHST), and its logic and language have come to permeate public (mis)understandings of statistical evidence. Newer data analytic approaches emphasizing margins of error, strength of relationship, and the synthesis of multiple studies through meta-analysis are moving from highly recommended to mandatory practices in scholarly outlets. This talk discusses some of the common abuses and misconceptions of the “old statistics” and highlights how the long-overdue transition to these “new statistics” will better serve science and the general public. Explanations will be more conceptual than mathematical, highlighting benefits both to data analysts and research consumers. The role of the QUAD center in supporting these best practice with students and faculty will also be discussed.

Event Image A Bird in the Hand: A History of Counting Birds from Proverbs to Powerful Citizen Science
3:00 PM - 4:00 PM

*WU Campus - Hatfield Library

David Craig, Professor of Biology, will speak about his recent research. Why do we count birds? What do we learn about ourselves when we do? David Craig will give an expansive lecture on the history of counting birds starting with the famous 13th century Latin proverb up to the present day. The talk will include updates about Craig's bird migration research based on his work with colleagues at Cornell University and the Lab of Ornithology. The Cornell Lab of Ornithology has built a set of powerful citizen science tools which will be introduced with special attention to eBird (http://ebird.org/). The talk will include a few lessons about how to scientists count birds in complex habitats like a forest or when thousands are flying by at high speed. The talk will also focus on the value in counting the same individual bird as often as possible and how new tracking technologies are allowing us to do so. Any questions the audience has about the lives of birds will be welcome and an introduction to the lecture topics can found at TEDxSalem.

Event Image Achieving Climate Equity Through Institutional Change: improving climate action outcomes for all


*WU Campus - Ford Hall

Climate change will affect everyone, but not all communities are situated equally in how they will experience these changes. Low-income communities and communities of color are more vulnerable to the impacts of climate change, and further, have less opportunity to participate in, and reap the benefit of climate actions. These inequities primarily result from ongoing institutional racial bias and historical discriminatory practices that have resulted in the inequitable distribution of resources and access to opportunities. This being true, what then is the role of institutions in creating different outcomes? Desiree Williams-Rajee, Equity Specialist for the City of Portland Bureau of Planning and Sustainability, will speak about the City of Portland’s experience in addressing these issues in their most recent update to the Portland Multnomah County Climate Action Plan. Ms. Williams-Rajee’s was recently honored by the White House as a Climate Equity Champion of Change for her work on the 2015 update to City of Portland Multnomah County Climate Action Plan. She is an active member of her community and currently serves on the board of Verde, a Portland organization that builds environmental wealth through social enterprise, outreach and advocacy. She was also a founding board member for the Center for Diversity and the Environment and established the Environmental Justice workgroup for the Portland African American Leadership Forum. Most importantly in her role as environmentalist and social justice advocate, she is a mother of two working to leave the world on a better path than she found it.

Why Aren't the Great Women Artists of Greece and Rome Better Known?
7:30 PM

*WU Campus - Hatfield Library

Dr. Kristen Seaman
University of Oregon

"In this illustrated lecture, Kristen Seaman reconstructs the roles of women artists in Greece and Rome by assembling evidence in literature, epigraphy, and visual culture. She considers how and why ancient and modern scholars have included or omitted them in their art-historical writing, and she traces the women’s places in schools of painting, retrieves their styles, and finds historical comparanda for their artistic, educational, and economic circumstances."
