Continued discussion of Lacks, research ethics, and your findings.)
- What articles did you find? What did you read and annotate?
- What was it like sharing a document?
- Did/how did this experience (reading this text, doing exploratory research) feed into your research proposal?
- What did this experience highlight for you regarding your research, critical reading, and citation/annotation skills? What do you feel you do well? What do you want to keep working to get better at? (…and how can we help?)
- Would you like to continue our conversation on research ethics? I gathered some foundational texts on research involving human subjects (below). These led to the creation of the modern IRB system. I’ve also linked you to TWU’s IRB.
- “A Summary of Important Documents in the Field of Research Ethics” (Fischer)
- “The Belmont Report” (@ Department of Health and Human Services)
- “A Summary of the Belmont Report” (Human Subjects Office, University of Iowa)
- The Belmont Report: Ethical Principles and Guidelines for the Protection of Human Subjects of Research (Volume 2)
- “The Declaration of Helsinki” (@ World Medical Association)
- “The Nuremberg Code” (@ National Institute of Health)
- “The Nuremberg Code: A Critique” (Ghooi)
- TWU Institutional Review Board (IRB)
Brainstorming workshop (re. your research proposal).
Branching off that, let’s consider how to develop the ideas you’ve pitched, and explore possible conferences.
For next time:
- Booth, The Craft of Research, “Engaging Sources” (84-99) and “Making Good Arguments” (108-119)
- explore c.v. resources: “Writing and Rewriting the c.v.” + “Learning from Other’s CVs” + “Sharing Success in New Ways” + “To Get Job Outside Academe, Focus Résumé on Real-World Experience”
- Post a draft c.v. to the Blackboard dropbox.
- In our next class, we’ll have a research and writing workshop.
- I want to start with working on c.v.s and professional documents portfolios (so be sure to put together, and post to Blackboard, a draft c.v. You might also include a resume, if you are thinking about alt-ac for after your MA or Ph.D., but I’d like to see it in addition to your c.v., not instead of. You will likely find you’ll need a c.v. for some things during your time with us, so take a stab at one.)
- We’ll also have some time to work on finding and annotating sources, and continue our work on conference proposals, so bring what you need to write.
