Odum Institute: Advances in Mixed and Qualitative Analysis

Thu. 1 Feb, 2024 9:00 am - 3:00 pm

Advances in Mixed and Qualitative Analysis

The growing presences of examples that pair mixed methods with qualitative methodologies like grounded theory where there is a sustained commitment to an exploratory drive have introduced a variety of innovations in the way the methodology is practiced. In this short course, author of three textbooks about mixed methods research with a contemporary orientation, Professor Elizabeth G. Creamer, draws out features of qualitatively oriented mixed methods research by highlighting three mixed analytical procedures: integrative case-based analysis, integrated and joint displays, and blended or mixed themes. Among the goals of the short course is that participants will learn (1) with mixed methods grounded theory as an example, a strategy to dissect the foundational assumptions of two methodologies and the synergies likely to emerge by pairing them, (2) how to integrate data from different sources through case-based analysis, including with visual data, (3) how to construct dynamic joint and integrated displays that serve different purposes, and (4) how to integrate during analysis by generating mixed or blended themes. Participants can benefit from this workshop without much prior exposure to mixed methods research.

Odum Institute: Academic Publishing 101

Fri. 2 Feb, 2024 9:00 am - 3:00 pm

Academic Publishing 101: From Idea to Article...and Beyond

This course will be available online via Zoom. Registration is required to secure your spot. This course will NOT be recorded – attendance is required.

Although graduate school teaches you many things, many PhD students complete their dissertations having never been fully trained in academic publishing. How does academic publishing actually work? Where should you publish your research? How do you actually get papers accepted in strong academic journals? In this talk, we will discuss several major ideas in academic publishing (focusing on the social sciences). We will discuss (1) professional integrity and ethics; (2) the role of academic conversations and communities as a guide for publication forums and journal selections; (3) the mechanics of publishing in journals and other forums (including outlining, writing style, journal, legal, and newspaper submissions, the peer review process, revisions, and corresponding with editors); and (4) acceptance and all that follows.

There will be a 1-hour lunch from 11:45 a.m. to 12:45 p.m. and (2) 15-minute breaks (one in the morning and one in afternoon).

45th Annual Minority Health Conference

Fri. 23 Feb, 2024 9:00 am - 4:30 pm

The Building Blocks to Well-Being: Connections Between Health and Stress

The Minority Health Conference, which is the largest and longest-running student-led health conference in the country, aims to raise awareness around minority health and mobilize students, academics and community members to take action for change. The conference seeks to examine the factors that have created and impacted health inequities across gender, race, economic status and other social determinants of health.

The social determinants of health are the conditions in which people are born, grow, work, live and age, as well as the wider set of forces and systems shaping the conditions of daily life that impact health outcomes (Healthy People 2030).

One of the primary methods by which these factors influence health is through the mental and physical stress they can place on individuals and communities—with intergenerational life cycle impacts. This year's conference will explore the social determinants of health, the stress they can cause, and their impacts on the short and long-term well-being of minority communities.

IN-PERSON OR VIRTUAL OPTION FOR 2023 CONFERENCE:

  • In-person will be held at the Friday Conference Center, 100 Friday Center Dr., Chapel Hill NC 27599
  • The virtual link will be emailed to virtual attendees by mid-February.

Odum Institute: Census Data for Urban Studies

Tue. 27 Feb, 2024 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

This course is being offered in collaboration between the Odum Institute and the Center for Urban & Regional Studies.

This one-day course will be offered via Zoom. Attendance is required as the course will not be recorded.

Course Summary:

In the past, working with US Census data in its various forms required gathering the data from numerous locations and using multiple software packages to process, analyze, and visualize it. Fortunately, recent improvements in census data delivery systems have made it far easier to acquire the data, greatly reducing the startup costs for people interested in working with the data. Additionally, new tools such as the tidycensus library in the R programming language offer a streamlined environment for acquiring, processing, and analyzing the census data products.

This one-day workshop will provide a hands-on, guided introduction to working with US Census data using tidycensus in R. The course will focus on using geographically-referenced demographic and socioeconomic data from the decennial census and American Community Survey (ACS). Participants will learn how to acquire data, perform basic data preprocessing tasks (e.g., subset, query, join), create basic visualizations (e.g., maps, plots, and graphs), and perform basic spatial and statistical analysis (e.g., correlation). Some experience with coding (particularly in R) is strongly recommended. Prior to the course, participants are required to have a working version of R (or RStudio) with the tidycensus library library installed. Participants are also required to register for a Census API Key.
