Upcoming Research Talk

Posted by Tim on April 25, 2021 in Event, Networking, Workshops

University at Buffalo, The State University of New York
  Upcoming Research Talk
Friday, April 30! Hello all!

We hope you are doing well as we near the end of a pretty hectic semester. Please consider taking a break from your studies next Friday, April 30th, to attend an interesting and important research talk by Schomburg Fellow Amanda Waggoner.   

Research Talk Details Friday, April 30 at 3:00 p.m.
RSVP Here
“Race and Place in Washington, D.C.”


Abstract: This research talk will discuss the effects of gentrification and media on Black communities in Washington, D.C. This research analyzes Black media representation by comparing two Washington, D.C.-based newspapers: The Washington Post and The Prince of Popville. By searching for trends about the frequency and types of Black topics discussed in both newspapers, I argue that based on where Black people live in accordance to the media coverage they encompass, can show the effects of gentrification and Black displacement in D.C.

   Presenter: Amanda Waggoner

Amanda is currently a PhD student in the Department of Geography. She received her B.A. in geography and music and M.S. in geospatial analysis from the University of Mary Washington in Fredericksburg, VA. She studies racial disparities in urban environments, specifically, how place affects racial inequalities. 

She is also interested in ethnomusicology and how music affects the culture of people and vice-versa. She uses Geographic Information Systems (GIS) to map out her research.

    Are You Interested in Presenting a Research Talk?

We would like to invite other fellows to present their research to the larger Schomburg/Presidential/GOP community in the format of a virtual research talk. Fellows will be able to present their research in a public format to a wide community of individuals outside of their discipline, which allows for the exchange of knowledge among the group and create potential scholarly collaborations. 

If you would like to share your research with the fellowship community, please let us know of your interest by filling out this Formstack. We are now scheduling talks throughout the spring semester. Day of the week and time of day are flexible based on the presenter’s preferences.

April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month at UB (SAAM) Workshops and Events

Posted by Tim on April 19, 2021 in Community Announcements, Event, Workshops

As you may know, every April UB recognizes Sexual Assault Awareness Month (SAAM) as a time to raise public awareness about sexual violence, to educate and inspire our community to prevent it, and provide support for members of our community who have experienced it.  We are continuing last year’s online efforts so that we can continue to come together as a community, from a safe social distance. 

Please visit our Sexual Violence Prevention and Response page to view upcoming workshops, programs and events, and share it with your students. We would like to highlight our upcoming event The Men’s Story Project (MSP). The MSP takes place 4:00-6:00 PM on Thursday 4/15/21. In the MSP, men, boys, and folks who identify in any way with masculinity publicly share personal stories that help transform social ideas about masculinity – so as to support health and equality for all people. This event will be held via Zoom and is free for everyone, though registration is required. We also wanted to let our community know we continue to fulfill program requests on healthy relationships and violence prevention for classes and groups in our campus community. 

Additionally, I’d like to assure you that our sexual violence response services are still fully supported. Students, faculty, and staff can continue to confidentially connect with our UB-dedicated Advocate from Crisis Services by calling or texting 716-796-4399, or emailing campusadv1@crisisservices.org.  You can also click the following hyperlinks for more information on sexual violence prevention, response, and policies.

Follow our Facebook pages @theUBAlliance and @UBMensGroup for additional watch parties, chats, coloring pages, and more that will be posted throughout the month!
