  • Description: In this session of Pixelating we will be viewing via webcast the BC Research Libraries talk by Dr. Jacqueline Quinless on Surveying the Landscape: Research Data Management, Data Governance and Ethics.

    The history of the collection of data on Indigenous people across the globe has been a problematic because of the methods which have failed to capture important differences relating to Indigenous peoples and communities and also in the way the data is processed, analyzed and disseminated. The 94 recommendations of the 2015 Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC) have further generated responses regarding how to address the impacts of residential schools.

    This presentation will draw on a 2017-2018 campus wide research study at the University of Victoria to discuss Research Data Management and challenges to open sharing. The conversation will explore topics related to data curation and data management, open access, and practices that are both ethically and culturally informed in the context of Indigenous protocols and data initiatives.
