Masks required in the #Library @mcplindiana

Even wild things wear masks in the Library! Wearing a face mask is one of the simplest, most effective ways to slow the spread of COVID-19. The Library requires patrons to wear a face covering on the premises. Disposable masks will be available for patrons who do not have a mask.

#Coronavirus is killing the #WorkingMother

Mother and son in home nursery

It was hard enough to “have it all” before — but the pandemic could force out a generation of moms out of the workforce

In Deb Perelman’s recent New York Times op-ed, “In the COVID-19 Economy, You Can Have a Kid or a Job. You Can’t Have Both,” she details the impossibility of parenting small children during the COVID-19 epidemic, writing, “We are not burned out because life is hard this year. We are burned out because we are being rolled over by the wheels of an economy that has bafflingly declared working parents inessential.”

Perelman’s piece went viral, causing “you can’t have both” to trend on Twitter and receiving a prized retweet from the totem of working parenthood, Hillary Clinton. But as a working parent and as a journalist, I couldn’t help but feel that while it articulated much of what I had been seething about throughout the crisis, it also buried the lede. Yes, fathers and mothers are having a difficult time right now; yes, our culture instructing parents to perform at full capacity in their jobs while simultaneously playing Nanny McPhee to their children is a ridiculously extravagant ask.

Perelman’s piece went viral, causing “you can’t have both” to trend on Twitter and receiving a prized retweet from the totem of working parenthood, Hillary Clinton. But as a working parent and as a journalist, I couldn’t help but feel that while it articulated much of what I had been seething about throughout the crisis, it also buried the lede. Yes, fathers and mothers are having a difficult time right now; yes, our culture instructing parents to perform at full capacity in their jobs while simultaneously playing Nanny McPhee to their children is a ridiculously extravagant ask.

In many respects, this is an unprecedented historical moment, says Stephanie Coontz, director of research and public education for the Council on Contemporary Families. Although mothers have been expected to juggle domestic labor with work for much of history, they were reliant on their communities — for instance, grandparents or neighbors — to assume some of the childcare when they were too busy. “There was this integrated community of work, education, instruction, and exchange that was very hard work, but it wasn’t this isolated work,” she says. While weepy, coronavirus-themed Facebook commercials may try to convince us that social media and virtual interaction can supplant the loss of this network, “they don’t have the actual physical coordination and the interdependence that parents really need,” she says. In other words, the COVID-19 pandemic has ushered in an era where parents, particularly women, are expected to achieve a perfect balance between work and childcare, and for basically the first time in human history, they’re expected to do it on their own.

Unsurprisingly, many experts have predicted that this doesn’t bode super well for women. A report from the United Nations has warned that the precarious economic situation could “roll back” many of the advances feminism has made over the past few decades, with layoffs hitting women disproportionately or forcing women with small children to bow out of the workforce. “We could have an entire generation of women who are hurt [economically],” Betsey Stevenson, a professor of economics and public policy at the University of Michigan, told the New York Times.

It’s worth noting, as Perelman does, that compared to many low-income women and women in service industries, middle-class working mothers who have the luxury of working from home are in a position of extraordinary privilege. While there is little hard data on the subject, low-income mothers will also be hardest hit by the impact of the pandemic: “If you’re making less money in a relationship and men make more, what’s happening is women are staying at home to cover for childcare and these are often low-income women,” says Ellen Kossek, a professor of management at Purdue University Krannert School of Management and author of a forthcoming study on the subject. It is proof of how broken the system is that even the best-case scenario (as Perelman and myself embody as happily employed middle-class remote workers), feels so daunting as to be unmanageable.

Truth be told, these prognostications are not anything new. Virtually any working mother has a horror story about feeling pushed out of the workplace pre-COVID-19, even those who come from a relative position of privilege, because the demands of the American workplace are totally antithetical to the demands of the home. You are forced to take a 30% pay cut as you watch your male partner get raise after raise and promotion after promotion, spending the remainder of your career trying in vain to catch up. You are encouraged to exclusively breastfeed your child for the first year of their life, which no one tells you is almost impossible to do if you’re chained to a desk for eight hours a day. And you are forced to apologetically duck out at 5:15, trying to avoid the gaze of your superiors, gazing wistfully at your childfree cohorts as they go off to sip Moscow mules and network at happy hours.

Under the best circumstances, being a working parent feels like being an unwanted guest at the world’s most tedious party, and what COVID-19 has done is essentially kick working mothers out of the room altogether. In this sense, it has succeeded where previous efforts to limit women’s ascendancy in the workplace — the absence of paid leave, rampant pregnancy discrimination, and loopholes that ensure some employers don’t have to institute lactation rooms, just to name a few — have failed: in a scenario so perfect it’s almost as if some misogynistic sorcerer conjured it in a dungeon, a global pandemic may well be the impetus for booting working mothers from the workplace altogether.

This is already kind of starting to happen. Over the past few months, policy makers have engineered what they no doubt view as ingenious ways to return children back to school, all of which have been met with widespread ire from parents on social media. Fairfax County in Virginia will be spearheading a part-time policy where students can choose between four days of remote learning or two days of on-campus learning, while Gov. Cuomo has suggested that the 2020-2021 school year could be entirely remote. Employers have also done their part in instituting policies that are wildly ignorant of, if not downright hostile to, the lived realities of working parents, with Florida State University instituting a policy for remote employees banning them from caring for children while working. “[FSU IS] acting like they gave us this privilege to watch our children while we worked — when that’s literally what I had to do,” one professor complained. (FSU walked back on this policy following backlash on social media, sending an email to staff saying, “We want to be clear — our policy does allow employees to work from home while caring for children.”)

That the needs of parents were not taken into account during the development of these policies is apparent; that the needs of working mothers in particular were not considered, doubly so. In the absence of these discussions, the onus has been on parents themselves, not employers or policy-makers or the media. “There’s a stigma right now that you cant say ‘I’m not available because I’m helping my kid with my homework from 2-3,’ and you have to empower people to do that especially during the pandemic,” says Kossek. Though she says managers should lead these conversations, the reality is that they so frequently fall on employees that it’s clear women aren’t just expected to seamlessly perform childcare and household and work duties simultaneously, they’re also expected to start the conversation about why such expectations are unfair.

Therein lies the crux of the issue: although much valuable discussion has been devoted to how COVID-19 has exposed the disparities in class, gender, and income, the parenting issue intersects with all three of those things, yet receives relatively little attention. “Why isn’t anyone talking about this? Why are we not hearing a primal scream so deafening that no plodding policy can be implemented without addressing the people buried by it?,” Perelman writes in her essay. While there are likely plenty of reasons — the relative unclickiness of the importance of paid parental leave among them — the truth is that parenting issues are so often considered as tantamount with women’s issues that they’ve been rendered marginalized in the discourse, almost to the degree that they’re ignored altogether.

There are some who are optimistic about the long-term changes that COVID-19 may bring in terms of gender dynamics and parenting. “In the long run we know that when men learn to actually get hands-on experience with the kind of work they were able to ignore for so long, they do do better,” says Coontz, citing studies that show how men who take paternity leave end up assuming more of the burden of household labor. Now that men have been forced to pick up some of the childcare burden, becoming more intimately acquainted with its accompanying gifts and travails, “I think there may be some possibilities for forward progress after this,” she says.

But such progress is dependent on “how we, as a society, respond to this crisis,” by which she means implementing family-friendly policies such as paid leave, decreasing the wage gap, and providing universal health care. “Sometimes there comes a crack in time,” Koontz says, quoting a line from a poem by Stephen Vincent Benet. “This is a real crack in time that exposes where the roads have been blocked, where they’ve been overgrown, where new things need to be built. They’re terribly painful, these cracks in time, but they can lead to change.” But that assumes that everyone, from policymakers to media figures, sees these roadblocks as roadblocks to begin with, and until more people let loose with that primal scream calling for massive change, then these cracks in time will likely be left ignored.



Open Access in Theory and Practice investigates the theory-practice relationship in the domain of open access publication and dissemination of research outputs.

Drawing on detailed analysis of the literature and current practice in OA, as well as data collected in detailed interviews with practitioners, policymakers, and researchers, the book discusses what constitutes ‘theory’, and how the role of theory is perceived by both theorists and practitioners. Exploring the ways theory and practice have interacted in the development of OA, the authors discuss what this reveals about the nature of the OA phenomenon itself and the theory-practice relationship.

Open Access in Theory and Practice contributes to a better understanding of OA and, as such, should be of great interest to academics, researchers, and students working in the fields of information science, publishing studies, science communication, higher education policy, business, and economics. The book also makes an important contribution to the debate of the relationship between theory and practice in information science, and more widely across different fields of the social sciences and humanities

Leaving the #Library #WilmavanWezenbeek @wvanwezenbeek


On 9 July 2020 I had my TU Delft Library leaving party. How lucky I am with such colleagues! And together with our NMC I have made my own farewell video, you can view it here. And this is the text, I repeat it below as my last weblog as Director TU Delft Library. 

Fourteen years ago, after twelve years in the world of academic publishing, I started working at the TU Delft Library. In those years, faculties were only allowed to house one faculty library in their buildings, and had to pay for it. So it was not surprising that we slowly closed our locations and said goodbye to the site managers. Except for Architecture & the Built Environment – here the faculty library with its map room is still very popular.

After the terrible fire in 2008 we briefly considered leaving the rescued collection in the central library, but happily we soon decided otherwise. The physical library caught my attention anyway during those first years; I had the privilege to be part of the transformation into a Library Learning Centre where the key words Educate, Create and Innovate formed the basis of the change, and the focus was much more on what you were allowed to do instead of showing prohibition stickers. We still have a wide variety of study places, inspiration through exhibitions and workshops and lectures, and of course our own coffeecorner.

In 2011 Maria Heijne retired as librarian and I succeeded her. And that same summer, the Ministry of Education, Culture and Science was considering cancelling our national task subsidy, and that became a reality. What had once been set aside by the university in the 1980s to be safeguarded from the cutbacks of that time and in the course of the years had received the label “subsidy”, could also be stopped as a subsidy. As a result, we were unable to replace retired employees for a few years, but at the same time we formulated our powerful ambition to allow knowledge to flow freely. That ambition still stands.

Libraries had to reinvent themselves, or needed to have themselves put on the map, because of the declining book lendings and increased digitization, risking that you focus a lot on your internal processes and yourself. We renewed and strengthened ourselves by embedding the NewMedia Centre, embracing Studium Generale and strengthening academic heritage at the university. So by showing and doing. And made clear what a Library also entails: the support of open education, the broad academic education of students and the curation of the present and the past. By doing this, by showing it! That it helps students if they can build on the knowledge of others, and that researchers and lecturers are impactful when they share the results of their publicly funded research and education with the world. Not for our raison d’être as a Library, but for that of others.

Some strategic trajectories. In my early days we started (then still as 3TU.datacentrum) RDNL, Research Data Netherlands, first together with DANS, and later with SurfSara. With our data archive, which had its kick-off in 2010, we were frontrunners, and we held on to that. In 2017, we appointed the first batch of data stewards at the faculties, coordinated by our relatively new Research Data Services team. The data archive, now 4TU.ResearchData, initiated in the time of my predecessor, had to prevent that the same thing would happen with our research data as what has been true for our scientific articles, namely that we would eventually have to buy them back for a lot of money from the scientific publishers.

Yeah, open access and open science, it kept us, it kept me busy! The national open science plan, which I had the honour of launching on 9 February 2017, gave us in The Netherlands and also the TU Delft ambitions, towards 100% open access to our scientific output in 2020, stimulating the reuse of research data and stimulating a different way of recognising and valuing researchers. It’s good to be ambitious, but in our hearts we knew that 100% open access in 2020 would be very challenging. I was allowed to experience all of this first hand over the past years, at OCW, VSNU, and UKB, and I see that we have taken solid & tough steps together. And are we there yet? No, of course not! But the subject of open science is on the map. It is a condition among research funders, nationally and internationally. We can’t sit back yet, but we can be proud. (See around 11:00 the open science call-out by president European Commission Ursula von der Leyen.)

This animated video was made by Just de Leeuwe at the occasion of the Dies Natalis of TU Delft in 2018 (dedicated on the topic of open science).

So who or what are we as a library? We are above all our people, our staff, our ideas with our power to realize them together with the other university services, and with our students, researchers and teachers. Together we can allow knowledge to flow freely.

In a world where it is more and more about networking instead of static organizations or institutes, I don’t have the feeling that I’m leaving the world of libraries or TU Delft. I broaden myself and take everything I’ve learned from and through Library and TU Delft staff with me. That is a nice feeling.

In the video I added a few things that I am curious about, and where I wonder how this will evolve in the coming years:

  • The new career paths, did they get there? Has the pressure on the teacher, student and researcher eased a bit? And are we looking at (the importance of) publishing differently? Are we focusing on relevance instead of excellence?
  • Do we have a new approach to thinking about collections, to really move away from possession and subscriptions to on-demand access and a much more dynamic collection? And has acquisition become more of a commodity, shifting our focus to enriching and presenting all of the university’s own output?
  • Is there integrated research support, where we have really joined forces with the other university services and created something we can be proud of? Were the data stewards harbingers for more targeted on-site support (with central coordination)?
  • Have we united in some places through international communities in such a way that we can move away from large commercial vendors and choose an open source infrastructure? (See this example, the open knowledge graph from TIB.)
  • Do we support not only the faculties but also the recently launched first eight AI labs?

So OK I am leaving the library, but I leave it behind in very capable hands of all current staff, and my successor Irene Haslinger!

My next challenge will be to join the VU, as director “SOZ” (Student & Education Affairs), where I for sure will be involved again in open science and open education, for me (and the TU Delft) an important part of open science. Just as a lot of our research is financed by public money, the same is true for our educational resources (OER). So we should do this wisely, (re)use if possible what is already out there, and share as much as possible with the world.

And yes the role of the Library in the student experience is very important, so I will stay indeed connected, and am sure that I will have frequent meet-ups with colleagues from the VU Library. In the past months I followed a MOOC from HarvardX, Leaders of Learning. There is much I still have to digest, but what I learned is that it is important that students are offered easy access to both physical and digital spaces, and that they should have autonomy to determine their level of commitment to and engagement with the learning, and that we should offer them spaces and tools that may facilitate learning, but we leave it to the learner and its community where learning should happen. We should listen to our students to improve the learning organisation, and facilitate active learning. These are things that are not entirely new, but enforced in our digital and connected world. Libraries have and will have an important role, both in facilitating the physical learning spaces, as well as guiding as educator the students to become broadly oriented and digitally equipped learners. Content is everywhere, learning is everywhere – it will be more important what skills & competences we give to our students, and here the Library can play a vital role. And that is a good thing.

Aqua-fi world’s first underwater wi-fi

underwater_wifi_selfie_title (1)

The quest for instant underwater communication took a step forward earlier this month, as researchers from the King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST) in Saudi Arabia have demonstrated an effective wireless communications system using light as a means of transmission.

Connecting divers to the Internet while they are underwater would undoubtedly be of huge benefit to scientific research of the world’s oceans. Data and imagery could be processed as it is gathered, rather than waiting for footage to be brought to the surface, analysed and then have another dive expedition prepared and deployed.

By the same token, there is an increasing demand from a new generation of divers raised in the age of social media for the ability to instantly share underwater selfies with the world. The ability to add footage of a passing whale shark to a virtual meeting would undoubtedly be prized by certain groups of divers.

Currently, underwater communication is possible by radio waves over very short distances; acoustic signals have a much greater range but the rate of data transmission is too low to be useful for anything other than simple signalling. Combining the two technologies has made it possible, for example, to track a group of divers underwater in real-time, but would not allow them to send images to people at the surface.

Light can travel much further through water than radio waves and can carry a huge amount of data, but it is only possible if the water is reasonably clear and there is a direct line of sight between transmitter and receiver.

The team from KAUST has developed an underwater wireless system – dubbed ‘Aqua-Fi’ – that would be able to support Internet communication using LEDs for low-powered short-range communications, or lasers, which can be used over longer distances but require more power.

In a paper published on IEEE.org, lead author Bassem Shihada describes how his team used green LEDs and lasers to transmit data from a small, simple computer known as the ‘Raspberry Pi’ to a light-sensitive receiver connected to a second device. Between computers in close proximity underwater, they recorded a maximum data transfer speed of 2.11 Megabytes per second, approximately 17Mbs (megabits per second), as Internet connections are usually labelled.

For the purposes of future underwater communication, the team envisage that Aqua-Fi would use radio waves to connect a submersible smart device to a ‘gateway’ device strapped to the diver’s tank, which would then connect to a relay station on a buoy or the underside of a boat, which could then connect to the Internet via 4G/5G or satellite services.

While the initial testing has proven successful, a real-world implementation of Aqua-fi is likely to take some time. ‘We hope to improve the link quality and the transmission range with faster electronic components,’, said Shihada. ‘The light beam must also remain perfectly aligned with the receiver in moving waters, and the team is considering a spherical receiver that can capture light from all angles.

‘We have created a relatively cheap and flexible way to connect underwater environments to the global internet,” he said. ‘We hope that one day, Aqua-Fi will be as widely used underwater as WiFi is above water.’

  • Every year, billions of animals are raised and slaughtered for food.
  • This uses huge amounts of water and energy.
  • Some experts believe alternatives could be better for people and the environment.

Billions of animals are killed for food every year. In fact the total number slaughtered every two years exceeds the number of people that have ever lived.

Whether you’re a keen meat eater or not, there’s no ignoring that its production consumes a huge amount of natural resources: 15,000 litres of water to produce a single kilogram of beef.

Many studies highlight the health benefits of reducing meat consumption too. A report published in the JAMA Internal Medicine found that eating two servings of red meat, processed meat or poultry a week was linked to a 3-7% higher risk of cardiovascular disease.

Growing alternatives

It’s no surprise, then, that there’s a growing amount of interest in meat alternatives.

A start-up firm in Israel, Redefine Meat, is using industrial-scale 3D-printing to produce a plant-based ‘alt-steak’ that it says has a structure and texture similar to that of the real thing.

Eshchar Ben-Shitrit, the company’s chief executive and co-founder, told Reuters: “We can do the entire cow, not only one part of the cow.”

In 2019, his firm raised $6 million in funding – an indication of how seriously the non-meat meat market is being taken. According to a report in Vox, demand for meat alternatives in the US leapt by 264% while the coronavirus pandemic was raging. Redefine Meat says it expects the category to be worth $140 billion annually by 2030.

Here’s to your health

Eating too much meat – red meat in particular – has been associated with a range of health problems for decades including heart disease and some forms of cancer. It has been linked with obesity too. In the US, over 70% of people are overweight or obese.

In China, meat consumption has grown as economic development has ushered in a series of societal changes. Rapid urbanization and the adoption of so-called Western lifestyle habits, like eating more fast food and meat in general, are two of the more visible examples. Under the surface, there are signs people’s health is starting to suffer.

A McKinsey report from 2019 sums it up by saying: “Alas, as incomes have grown, so too have waistlines. Diets high in protein and fat have taken hold in China, leading to a 10% urban-area obesity rate projected to increase to 25% by 2030 if left unchecked. Obesity is already costing the country more than $93 billion annually, or 1.1% of GDP.”

What is meat anyway?

Meatless meatballs, burgers, sausages and more have been available in supermarkets around the world for decades. They tend to contain things like soy, rice, peas and other vegetables.

The challenge for such products has tended to be that no matter how they taste, their texture doesn’t resemble meat. That’s something the use of 3D-printing technology could overcome, as it creates layers of interwoven fibres that more closely mimic the real thing.

In 2013, meanwhile, a food scientist in the Netherlands hit upon a different approach. Mark Post of the University of Maastricht unveiled a burger grown in a laboratory from cattle stem cells and muscle tissue. At a biochemical level, his burger is made from the same stuff as a regular burger – meat tissues.

But it didn’t come from an animal. Technically it isn’t the flesh and muscle fibre of any cow. Whether or not that means it is meat may be a question for philosophers to ponder.

A route forward

As well as consuming resources, the meat industry generated considerable amounts of greenhouse gas emissions. Compared with the production of a regular meat burger, plant-based alternatives use up to 99% less water, 95% less land, and 90% less emissions, according to the United Nations.

None of which gets us away from the rising global demand for meat. But there are short- and long-term changes that will help address some of these concerns. The UN cites a study undertaken by the University of Michigan, on behalf of the meat-substitute producer Beyond Meat. It suggests that Americans eat, on average, three burgers per week but could “save the amount of greenhouse gas emissions produced by 12 million cars, simply by swapping one of those weekly meals with a plant-based alternative.”

The UN’s Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) suggests a series of changes in consumers’ attitude and behaviour will be required to secure a more sustainable global food supply. These include raising awareness among the general public of the importance of tackling food waste: around the world one-third of all food produced ends up in the garbage.

The FAO also calls for a rebalancing of food prices to reflect the total cost of food production and supply. That includes the loss of biodiversity from land-clearance, emissions and pollution, and the consumption of water. And it suggests a reduction in per-capita meat consumption in affluent countries.




As we contend with two seismically important events — the Covid -19 pandemic and the uprisings over police brutality and systemic racism — foundations and nonprofits need to work harder than ever to build trust in their programs and policies. To do that, they need clear, thoughtful, and inclusive communications strategies.

In April, suspecting the pandemic would set in motion significant and lasting changes in communications in the philanthropic world, the Communications Network and Atlantic 57 surveyed 275 communications leaders, CEOs, and board members at nonprofits and foundations about the changes they were seeing in their organizations.

While we couldn’t have predicted it, this research also offered a unique window into the perspectives of communications leaders on the eve of George Floyd’s murder. We found that race was already very much on people’s minds, with 67 percent of respondents reporting they expected to see profound narrative shifts on racial equity as a result of the pandemic.

The survey revealed three key findings about communications at foundations and nonprofits during the pandemic:

Communications leaders are playing a critical role in organizing an effective response. From the earliest days of the pandemic, many communications leaders have found themselves juggling expanded responsibilities. Most survey respondents (69 percent) reported their organizations formed an internal working group focused on the Covid-19 crisis, typically consisting of senior leaders, including communications heads. Three-quarters of survey respondents said their teams were involved in developing and distributing internal communications about Covid-19.

Increasingly, external messaging and statements from foundations and nonprofits are led by CEOs serving as the communicators-in-chief. Based on responses to our survey, CEO communications take the form of virtual town halls, op-eds, video addresses, or internal communications sent out by the chief executive in tandem with communications staff. Our research suggests that communications leaders who step up and lean into their central roles during this moment of transformation will have the greatest impact and a seat at the strategy table going forward. As protests and demonstrations continue, it is clear that silence is not an option and that transparency and accountability are imperative.

Storytelling is not adequately addressing racial or gender equity. Approximately two weeks before George Floyd’s murder, 67 percent of respondents reported they saw an opportunity to reshape the narrative on racial equity in America following the pandemic, but only 19 percent had already added a racial-equity focus to their storytelling approach. The data suggests few organizations are engaged in the storytelling that may be needed most right now. Only 43 percent say they are actively listening to and seeking input from the people they serve when shaping their storytelling. And just 2 percent were looking at gender equity in their work.

Not surprisingly, 81 percent of respondents reported reframing their organizations’ stories to include Covid-19-related themes, experiences, or insights. Most respondents saw an opportunity to inject new momentum into discussing the issues that feel most salient right now, including public health (80 percent), racial equity (67 percent), economic opportunity (67 percent), social justice (63 percent), and the role of government (54 percent).

Communications goals have shifted sharply. One in five communications leaders say their goals and priorities completely changed when Covid-19 hit, and another 62 percent report their communications work shifted at least somewhat. For instance, many said the pandemic has led to a greater focus on communicating the economic and health disparities exposed by Covid-19. More than 50 percent have canceled or paused campaigns, as well as changed their messages and tone. In light of the racial uprisings, it’s likely this recalibration is accelerating.

What’s Next?

During the current twin crises, the most agile foundations and nonprofits have made communications a priority, fostering cultures of communications. Here’s how to keep it going:

  • Actively listen to the partners and people you serve. Our survey suggests that far too many organizations (57 percent) failed this test during the earliest days of the pandemic. This was a surprise, perhaps attributable to the initial haze and tumult of the health crisis. But the fact remains that communications begins with listening, which requires connecting with those who are working directly with people suffering most from systemic health and economic disparities.
  • Stay flexible. This goes against the basic tendencies of many foundations and some nonprofits accustomed to a slower bureaucratic process. The pandemic has shown that these organizations can be nimble when they need to be. Fully 60 percent of those whose priorities have shifted say that the stories they tell about their work have changed because of the pandemic. But as this crisis continues and the country responds to growing demands for racial equity, these organizations will need to guard against falling back on old patterns.
  • Be aware of tone. Leading and communicating with humanity and empathy is essential — now and in the years of recovery and healing to come. Our survey shows signs of progress in this area. More than half (53 percent) of respondents whose priorities have shifted because of Covid-19 say the tone of their communications has also changed, with 68 percent saying they are striving for a more empathetic tone and 52 percent for a more encouraging tone.

Our survey revealed that many positive steps were taken at the onset of the pandemic, and these carried through in recent responses to racial injustice, including the formation of collaborative teams responsible for nimble communications responses and a greater emphasis on transparent and empathetic communication.

The challenge ahead for foundations and nonprofits is how to evolve from old leader-driven communications models to more open and participatory approaches focused on listening and learning from those on the ground fighting for change. One thing is clear: Our networked, information-driven world demands that nonprofits and foundations communicate — and communicate well. Communications is no longer an “adjunct” to the work we do. Increasingly, it is the work.

Okunmuş Gazeteden Çocuk Kitabına


1979 Dünya Çocuk Yılı’nda Ankaralılar, ülkemizde çocuk edebiyatı ve çocuk kitabı yayıncılığı açısından benzeri az görülür bir gelişmeye tanıklık etti. Ankara Belediyesi, çocuklara adanmış bu yılda onlara armağan olarak dağıtmak üzere on bir adet çocuk kitabının basımını yaptı. Bir Milyon Çocuk Kitabı adlı bu projenin sıradışı yönü ve onu Türkiye için bir ilk kılan şey ise kitapların basılacağı kâğıtların belediyenin düzenlediği Okunmuş Gazete Toplama Kampanyası yoluyla bizzat çocuklar tarafından sağlanmış olmasıydı. Okullarda toplanan bu gazeteler, SEKA fabrikasına hammadde olarak gönderilecek, karşılığında kitapların basılacağı kâğıt ruloları alınacaktı.

Kampanya mart ayı sonunda kentteki tüm ilkokullarda başladı ve on gün sürdü. O yıllarda başkentin bir işçi ve küçük memur semti olan Türk-İş Blokları’nda otururduk, bense 13 Ekim İlkokulu’na giden bir ikinci sınıf öğrencisiydim. Ankara’nın kışları bugünküne benzemezdi. Bir kez kar yağdı mı haftalarca, hatta aylarca kalkmazdı yerden. O günlerde kar var mıydı yok muydu hatırlamıyorum, ama ayaz paşa kol geziyordu ve ben buz kesmiş ellerimde evden, konu komşudan topladığım tomar tomar gazeteyle her sabah okula koşturuyordum o on gün boyunca. Hatta günlük rekoltemizle yetinmeyip arkadaşlarla birkaç kez çöp tenekelerini de eşelediğimizi hatırlıyorum.

O dönemde CHP’li Ali Dinçer’in başkanlığını yaptığı Ankara Belediyesi’nin projedeki temel amacı başkentte okuyan her çocuğa üç adet kitabı ücretsiz olarak ulaştırmaktı. Seride on bir kitap yer alıyordu. Bunların üçü şiirlerden, altısı öykü ve masallardan yapılmış seçkilerdi. Bir tanesi de tüm kitaba yayılan tek bir öyküden oluşan, roman da denebilecek bir kitaptı. En sonuncusu ise Bu Kitabın Masalı adını taşıyordu ve projenin ana fikrini ve yürütülme sürecini, toplanan kâğıtların hangi aşamalardan geçerek kitaplara dönüştüğünü “kentin küçük vatandaşları”na anlatıyordu. Her çocuğa verilen üç kitabın birisinin mutlaka Bu Kitabın Masalı olacağı baştan belirlenmişti. Diğer ikisi alıcının –veya dağıtımı yapan öğretmenlerin– seçimine bırakılmıştı. Böylece her çocuk, elindeki kitapların nasıl ortaya çıktığını öğrenebilecek, bunda belediyenin, kendisi veya arkadaşlarının payını duyumsayabilecekti. Kitaplar aynı yılın ekim ayında basılarak, yeni başlamış olan ders yılında öğrencilere dağıtıldı.

Serideki her kitabın künyesinde yazılı olan baskı adetleri alt alta eklendiğinde sahiden de bir milyonluk bir toplama ulaşıldığını görüyoruz. Her kitapta baskı sayısı 1.000.000/11 olarak belirtilmiş. Bu Kitabın Masalı ise anahtar kitap olması ve verilecek her sette yer alması nedeniyle 200.000 adet basılmış. Her çocuğa üç kitap verildiğine göre toplamda 350 bin çocuğa ulaşıldığı ortaya çıkıyor. 1980 yılında yapılan sayımda Ankara’nın kentsel nüfusunun 2.238.000 olduğu ve Türkiye’de çocuk nüfusunun (BM tanımına göre 0-17 yaş arası grup) toplam nüfusun üç ile dörtte biri arasında değiştiği göz önüne alındığında,1 ilkokul öğrencisi olan her çocuğa kitap verilebildiği sonucuna varmak mübalağa olmayacaktır.

Belediyecilik açısından böyle bir projenin siyasi propaganda yönünü elbette yadsıyamayız; fakat erişilen yurttaş sayısı ve o dönemin imkânları düşünülürse muazzam değerde bir kamusal fayda gerçekleşmiş olduğunu kabul etmek gerekir. Öyle görünüyor ki, belediyenin böylesine geniş çaplı bir projeyi başarıyla hayata geçirebilmesinin en önemli sebebi birçok kurumla işbirliği yapılarak, örgütlü biçimde çalışılmış olmasıdır. Kampanyanın yaygınlaştırılması için Ankara Milli Eğitim Müdürlüğü’nden destek alınmış, toplanan gazeteler karşılığında SEKA fabrikasından kitap basımına uygun kâğıt temin edilmiştir. Kitapların kapak baskısı, Türk Tarih Kurumu’nda, dizgi ve iç baskısı Genel-İş Sendikası’nın Em-Aş Ofset tesislerinde bilabedel yapılmıştır. Ayrıca, Ziraat Bankası ve Sümerbank da, kitapların kapak içi ve arkalarına reklam vererek kampanyaya katkıda bulunmuştur.

Kitapları yayına hazırlayan, o yıllarda Ankara Belediyesi Basın Yayın Müdürlüğü’nde görev yapan Bülent Özükan’dır. Özükan (1954) bu çalışmasıyla UNESCO’nun 1979 Dünya Çocuk Yılı En Başarılı Faaliyetleri Belgesi’ni alır ve Simavi Vakfı Özel Ödülü’ne layık görülür.2 Bu başarının ardından 1985 yılında Boyut Yayın Grubu’nu kuran Özükan yayıncılık sektörünün önemli isimlerinden biri olur.3 Kitapların sayfa ve kapak düzeni tasarımını, henüz bugünkü tanınırlık düzeyine erişmemiş genç bir çizer olan Selçuk Demirel (1954) üstlenmiştir.

Belediye Başkanı Ali Dinçer’in çocuklara hitaben kaleme aldığı takdim yazısı serideki her kitabın giriş sayfalarında yer alır. Dinçer, “kentin küçük vatandaşları” olarak seslendiği çocuklara kitap sevgisini aşılama çabasındadır. Kitaplar çocukların “yeni arkadaşları”dır ve onların değişen dünyası olacaktır.4 Belediyenin armağan ettiği üç kitap, her çocuğun evinde “bir kitaplığın temelini atacak”tır.5 Bu Kitabın Masalı ise hem Bir Milyon Çocuk Kitabı projesini, hem de bir kitabın üretim sürecini baştan sona, farklı ağızlardan anlatır. Çocuk, öğretmen, belediye, atık kâğıt ve kitabın kendisi anlatının değişen özneleri olarak söz alır. Çocuğun kafası sorularla doludur. Öğretmene, kitap yapılabilmesi için neden gazete topladıklarını sorar. Para biriktirseler olmaz mı acaba? Bu retorik soru, öğretmene okunmuş gazeteleri biriktirmenin ulusal bir tasarruf sağladığını, artık onların çöplerde çürümek yerine yeni basılacak kitaplar için hammadde olacağını, bu üretimde de çocukların bizzat pay sahibi olduğunu anlatma fırsatı verir.6 Çocukların, okuyacakları kitapların üretimine emekleriyle katkıda bulunması fikri, başka bir yerde, belediyenin ağzından katılımcı yönetim fikrinin işlenmesine vesile olur: “Ve sen, belki bilmiyordun, belki de söyleyen olmadı. Ama Ankara Belediyesi’nin bir ortağısın.”7 Sonlara doğru, artık matbaadaki basım sürecinin anlatıldığı bölümlerde, bu sefer kâğıt söz alır, “kitap olmak bir kâğıt için en mutlu olay”dır.8 Matbaadan çıkan bir milyon kitap ise artık bir ordudur:

“Dünyanın en güçlü ordusu olduk diyebilirim. Ne Vietnam’daki gibi çocukların üzerine Napalm bombası gönderen, ne de Hiroşima’daki gibi çocukların üzerine atom bombası atan bir orduyduk. Sevgi, kardeşlik ve barış dağıtan bir ordu olduk.”9

“Barış dağıtan ordu” gibi oksimoron taşıyan ifadeler, hele ki 1979 Dünya Çocuk Yılı bağlamında yeni ve cazip buluşlardır. Ülkede yaşanan onca şeyden sonra bugün ironik keskinliğini yitirip bir klişeye dönüştüğünü görmek üzücüdür.

Gelelim, Bir Milyon Çocuk Kitabı projesinin bana göre Türkiye için bir ilk olmasını sağlayan yönüne. Kamuya duyurulup hayata geçirildiği 1979 yılında, ismi o şekilde koyulmamış da olsa, yapılan iş aslında bir geri kazanım projesidir. Kullanım dışı kalan geri dönüştürülebilir bir malzeme olarak eski, okunmuş gazeteler toplanmış, faydalı bir amaç için çeşitli işlemlerden geçerek hammaddeye dönüştürülmüş, tekrar üretim sürecine dahil edilmiştir. Elbette, Bu Kitabın Masalı’nda da belirtildiği gibi, basılan kitaplar doğrudan çocukların topladığı gazete kâğıtlarından yapılmamıştır. O dönem mevcut olan teknolojik altyapı gazete kâğıdı gibi yoğun matbaa boyası içeren 3. hamur tip kâğıtların ancak kesekâğıdı gibi ürünlere aşağı dönüşümüne [downcycling] olanak vermekte, kitap basımına uygun temizlikte kâğıt o yolla elde edilememektedir. Bu nedenle, toplanan gazete kâğıtları SEKA’ya verilmiş, karşılığında kitap basılacak kâğıtlar alınmıştır. Fakat dönemin koşulları içinde bu mübadele yine de bir geri kazanım döngüsü sayılmalıdır. Nitekim Bu Kitabın Masalı’nda hamur olup yeniden beyaz kâğıda dönüşme süreci de atık kâğıdın ağzından çocuklara anlatılmaktadır.

Ülkemizde geri dönüşüm kavramı ve uygulamalarının ilk kez 1990’larda, sürdürülebilirlik tartışmalarının 2000’lerde ve nihayet döngüsel ekonomi gibi bir vizyonun yeni yeni hayatımıza girdiğini göz önüne alırsak, Bir Milyon Çocuk Kitabı projesinin önemi ve kendinden sonrası için taşıdığı değer apaçık ortaya çıkar. Böyle bir kampanyanın Dünya Çocuk Yılı’nda, çocukların katılımıyla yürütülmesi özellikle anlamlıdır. Herhangi bir şeyin üretiminde emeğimle pay sahibi olmak, tüketilen ve çöpe giden şeylerin değer taşımaya devam ettiğini ya da bir değere dönüşebileceğini idrak etmek, bu cümledeki sözcük ve kavramlardan haberdar olmasam da, yedi yaşında bilincine vardığım ve parçası olmaktan müthiş zevk duyduğum gerçeklerdi. Kampanya sayesinde dünyada 1970’lerde yaygınlaşan çevre hareketiyle gündeme yerleşmiş bir kavramı ve pratiği farkında olmadan ve tam vaktinde tecrübe etmiştik.

Bir Milyon Çocuk Kitabı serisini oluşturan on bir kitabın ülkemiz çocuk edebiyatına da dikkate değer bir katkı sağladığını vurgulamak gerekir. Kitapların biri dışında tamamı tematik bakış açısıyla yapılmış seçkiler niteliğindedir. Tek tek incelendiğinde her bir kitaba ait seçkinin ciddi bir editoryal çalışma sonucu bir araya getirilmiş olduğunu görebiliyoruz. Bu Memleket BizimYüz Paralık Bulut ve Televizyondaki Reklamcı Amca serideki üç şiir kitabıydı ve her biri farklı bir tematik çerçevede derlenmiş şiirlerden oluşuyordu. İsminden de anlaşılacağı gibi, Bu Memleket Bizim bir memleket şiirleri derlemesiydi; fakat okullarda çocuklara ezberletilen milliyetçi hamasetten uzak, yurt ve insan sevgisini işleyen, yaşadığımız toprakların tüm kültürel mirasını kucaklayan, barışçıl şiirlerden oluşuyordu, hatta ülkeler arasında var olan sınırları sorgulayan şiirler bile vardı. Yüz Paralık Bulut kısa, minimalist, imgesel açıdan zengin, naif şiirlerden oluşuyordu. Orhan Veli’nin şiirlerine özellikle ağırlık verilmişti. Son olarak Televizyondaki Reklamcı Amca doğa ve özgürlük temalı şiirleri bir araya toplamıştı.

Serideki altı kitap ise masal ve öykülerden yapılmış seçkilerdi. Tıpkı şiir kitaplarında olduğu gibi, bunlar için de tematik bir tutarlılık gözetilmişti. Sevdalı Bulut, sosyal düzene eleştirel açıdan bakan masallardan oluşuyordu. Nazım Hikmet’in “Sevdalı Bulut” masalı, zorbalığı, tamahkârlığı ve mülkiyet hırsını hedef tahtasına koyarken, “Sırça Köşk”te Sabahattin Ali insanların iktidar aygıtına hiç sorgulamadan biçtikleri değeri hicvediyordu. Aziz Nesin’in “Öküz Başkan” masalı seçimlerde yaşanan siyasi rekabet ve çekememezliğin yol açabileceği absürt sonuçlara dikkat çekerken, tipik bir Orhan Kemal öyküsü olan “Harika Çocuk” emekçi çocukların cefa dolu hayatına eğiliyordu.

Bir de Varmış İki de Varmış ismiyle müsemma bir kitaptı. Geleneksel masal biçimi ve üslubunda yazılmış uzun hikâyelerden oluşuyordu. Aralarında bir Keloğlan masalının da bulunduğu bu derleme, serinin günümüz pedagojik standartlarının en uzağına düşen kitabıydı. Kesilen başlar, şiddet ve kan dolu sahnelerle bir ilkokul çocuğunun muhayyilesi üzerine sert ve iz bırakan darbeler indirmiş olması kuvvetle muhtemeldi.

Yine başlığının yaptığı çağrışıma uygun biçimde Kıt Akıllı Karga hayvanlar ve bitkiler âleminden çoğu mizahi ve ibret verici kısa öyküleri bir araya getiriyordu. Hatta Ezop masallarının her birinin sonunda kıssadan hisse mahiyetinde açıklamalar bile yapılmıştı. Ezop’un masalları Tarık Dursun, Lafonten’inkiler Orhan Veli, Nasreddin Hoca fıkraları da Kemal Özer ve Ömür Candaş tarafından yeniden anlatılıyordu. Andersen masalı “Papatya” ise, baştan beri neşe içinde seyreden derlemeye acıklı bir nokta koyuyordu.

Arabalar Beş Kuruşa başlıklı derleme, toplumcu gerçekçi tarzda yazılmış öyküleri bir araya getirmişti. Arka planda yoksulluk ve sınıf ayrımının bulunduğu, küçük yaşta omuzlarına büyük dertler yüklenen veya çalışmak zorunda kalan çocukların öyküleriydi bunlar. Bu acıklı ve dokunaklı öykülerin, kitabın yayımlandığı dönem açısından güncel olduğunu da ekleyelim. Öte yandan, kitaptaki öykülerin çocuklara umut aşılayan bir yanı da vardı. Yoksulluk ve sınıf farkının hüküm sürdüğü koşullara karşı öykü kahramanı çocukların aldırmaz bir tutum sergilemesi iç ferahlatıcıydı.

Kovboyculuk Oyunu bana göre serinin en cool ve eğlenceli öykülerini içeriyordu. 1979 yılı sonunda okulda yapılan dağıtımda bahtıma düşen üç kitaptan birisiydi. Aradan geçen kırk küsur yılda aklıma estikçe elime alıp sesli gülerek okuduğum bir kitap olageldi. Öykülerin ortak teması, sokak oyunları ve çocukların sokak hayatıydı. Bisiklete binmeyi öğrenirken yaşanan fiyaskolar, aşırı korumacı anneleri atlatma çabası, izlediği filmlerdeki kovboy karakterleriyle aşırı derecede özdeşlik kuran, rolüne kendini kaptırıp mahalleler arası savaş çıkaran haytalar, yaramazlıklar, ne ararsanız vardı.

Öte yanda ise Falaka bambaşka bir edebiyat dönemi ve anlayışını örnekleyen öykülerden derlenmişti. Geç Osmanlı, Kurtuluş Savaşı yılları ve erken Cumhuriyet döneminde kaleme alınmış veya bu zamanları anlatan acıklı çocuk hikâyeleri serinin o yıllarda okuduğumuz müfredatla en yakın bağ kuran kitabını oluşturuyordu. Hâlâ hatırlarım, sanırım bu sebepten ötürü dağıtım sırasında en az tercih edilen kitap Falaka olmuştu. Bir dayak aletinin adını taşıyan, ağır anlatı tarzına sahip böyle bir kitabı kim almak isterdi ki?

Nihayet, serideki tek roman hüviyetindeki kitap Samed Behrengi’nin Bir Şeftali Bin Şeftali adlı uzun öyküsüydü. Tek bir şeftalinin meyveden çekirdeğe, çekirdekten fidana ve ağaca ulaşan döngüsünü işleyen öykü, belki de okunmuş gazete kâğıdından Bir Milyon Çocuk Kitabı’na varan döngüyle en kuvvetli tematik bağı kuruyordu. Ayrıca, köylüyü hor görüp ağaya uşaklık eden bahçıvana meyve vermeyi reddeden şeftali ağacı tüm çocukların anti-kahramanı olmuştu. İlginç olan nokta, Bir Şeftali Bin Şeftali’nin 1975 yılında Cem Yayınları-Arkadaş Kitaplar dizisinden de yayımlanmış olmasıydı. 1979 yılında bu kitabın yeni baskıları hâlâ kitapçılarda bulunabiliyordu. Buna rağmen, aynı eser farklı bir çeviri ile Bir Milyon Çocuk Kitabı projesine de dahil edilmişti. Diğer taraftan, aslında seriyi oluşturan tüm kitapların Arkadaş Kitaplar ile aynı havuzdan beslendiği de bir gerçekti.

Bugün Bir Milyon Çocuk Kitabı serisine ait bu kitapları sahaflarda ve eski kitapçılarda bulmak, önceki yazıda ele aldığım Cem Yayınları-Arkadaş Kitaplar dizisine nazaran daha zordur. Çok yüksek adetlerde basılmış olmasına rağmen bu kitapların günümüz ikinci el piyasasına yeterli sayıda ulaşamamış olması biraz da düşük baskı kalitelerinden kaynaklanmış gibidir. Selofan kaplı parlak kapakları olmayan, esmer yapraklara basılı, 64 sayfalık kitaplardır bunlar. Bu nedenle çoğu yıpranarak dağılmış, zamana yenik düşmüş veya sahipleri tarafından korunup saklanacak denli cazip bulunmamış olmalıdır.

Ben ise o gün bana verilen üç kitabı saklamakla kalmadım, yıllar içinde diğer kitapları da bularak seriyi tamamladım; çünkü onlar örgütlü bir çabayla birlikte ürettiğimiz kitaplardı. Tıpkı takdim yazısında Ali Dinçer’in biz çocuklara söylediği gibi:

“Bu yüzden, bu kitabı okurken ayrı bir onur duyabilirsiniz, çünkü bu kitapta belki senin, belki bir arkadaşının, ama mutlaka sizlerin de emeği var.”10

Why #psychographic data is crucial in times of crisis

New call-to-action

In times of crisis, behaviors change. Brands must change theirs too, or risk being left behind.

Psychographic, or ‘attitudinal’, research explores peoples’ values, desires, goals, interests and lifestyle choices. Combined with demographic research, it builds a complete picture of your target audiences and gives you insight into where and how to meet them.

But even brands that have a firm grasp of this audience portrait have seen it shattered by the current global crisis. So what needs to be done to get a true view of the 2020 consumer?

The ‘next normal’: why psychographic data matters

The passing of time and changing circumstances has always meant consumer wants, needs and motivations are in constant evolution, but the coronavirus pandemic has not only fast-tracked this – it’s created a new world.

Charlie Echeverry of marketing company Black//Brown predicts there will be no ‘new normal’. Instead brands must look to the ‘next normal’, where the main focus lies on psychographic research over behaviors. Here’s why.

1. The world, and consumer behavior, is changing fast.

This is a time of fast, unpredictable change on a global scale. And while consumer actions are, and will continue to be, a crucial part of any marketing strategy, the motivations behind these actions are only set to grow in importance. It’s never been more important to know why your target audiences act the way they do.

2. Be responsive – in the way consumers want.

The pandemic has impacted the entire world on a personal level, and it’s imperative that brands keep their finger on the pulse of how consumers will react to their message. Our coronavirus research tracks these attitudes and shows how they’re evolving as time goes on.

3. These times are unprecedented – and your creativity has to match.

It’s not good enough to fall back on your brand campaigns and stick to your brand message without reassessing its purpose. It’s time to be creative and make sure to resonate with your target audience as they are right now. The only way to do this is to have access to the kind of psychographic research that gives you up-to-date, relevant context around changing mindsets as well as habits.

4. In an uncertain environment, you must be flexible.

What 2020 has proven to brands is that you can be as prepared as you want – some things are simply out of your control. While you may have a shiny, data-driven marketing plan at hand, you must come back to the consumer data to make sure it still holds up – and attitudes change faster than actions.

The state of the consumer mindset

Globally, only 20% strongly approve of brands running “normal” advertising campaigns.

And while overall approval is on a steady rise, proving it’s crucial for brands to not cease your advertising efforts, it shows you need to rediscover what your target audiences want to see from you.


Audience spotlight: Mothers in a crisis

To dig deeper into the attitudes and expectations of consumer segments, we zeroed in on mothers and their unique reactions to the pandemic. Here are some key findings from wave 4 of our ongoing Coronavirus study, conducted in May.

  • Regular cleaning and disinfecting (75%) is the most important factor in public spaces, ahead of things like face masks, hand sanitizer and social distancing measures.
  • They’re more concerned, to any degree, about the global situation (85%) than their own country’s (67%).
  • 45% say corporate sustainability has become a lot more important to them during the outbreak, ahead of reducing their personal use of single-use plastic (40%) and reducing their carbon footprint (42%).
  • 37% believe the outbreak will have a big or dramatic impact on their personal finances.
  • 46% claim they’ll shop online more after the pandemic.

Steps to reassessing your psychographic model

While you may be well-acquainted with the steps to get psychographic research into your strategy, how can you use it to resonate with your consumers during a global crisis?

  1. Revisit your audience segments and personas.
  2. Look as far ahead as possible.
  3. Tell emotionally compelling, but culturally sensitive, stories.

TR Dizin Tanıtım ve Eğitim Etkinliği – Açılış Konuşması Abdullah ATALAR, Bilkent Üniversitesi Rektörü

C & C

Conference chairs:

A. Weber (University of Twente), E. Gassó Miracle (Naturalis Biodiversity Center), K. Wolstencroft (Leiden University), M. Heerlien (Rijksmuseum Amsterdam)

(*) COVID-19 UPDATE: Due to current COVID-19 regulations we do not yet know in what form the conference will take place. For now, we aim at a hybrid conference which will allow a small number of participants from nearby to come to Naturalis. All other participants (including presenting authors from abroad) who cannot come to Naturalis, will get in any event the opportunity to contribute to the conference digitally.

We are pleased to announce a call for papers for the international conference Collect & Connect: Archives and Collections in a Digital Age. The conference will be held at Naturalis Biodiversity Center in Leiden (*) from 23-24 November 2020. The aims of this international conference which officially concludes the NWO/Brill Creative Industries Project Making Sense of Illustrated Handwritten Archives are twofold. First, to present results of finished and original research in the field of digitized archives and natural and cultural heritage collections. Second, to promote exchange and discussion between researchers and heritage professionals in the field of digital natural and cultural heritage. Next to specialized paper presentations, the conference will also entail a variety of interactive formats (e.g., round tables or demos). Six to eight papers presented at the conference are expected to be selected for publication in the ACM Journal of Computing and Cultural Heritage (JOCCH). All positively reviewed papers shall be submitted as proceedings volume to CEUR-WS.org for online publication. Confirmed keynote speakers are:

Important dates:

    • 11 September 2020 (deadline for short and long papers)
    • 2 October 2020 (notification of authors)
    • 15 November 2020 (camera-ready papers)

Thematic scope of the conference:

In recent years, libraries, archives and museums have spent major efforts on annotating and enriching their digitized archives and collections with contextual information, in order to make them retrievable and interlinked in novel ways. Often institutions aim to enhance their reach and relevance for broader user groups. A major challenge in the field is the heterogeneous character of many of such digitized collections. Many handwritten archives and collections of physical objects in the realms of natural history, archaeology, history, and art history entail combinations of textual and visual elements whose interpretation requires a range of different expertises and computational technologies. This conference therefore welcomes papers that present, discuss, and reflect upon the technical, social, and institutional challenges digital heritage professionals and researchers encounter when enriching heterogeneous digitized collections with context.

Topics include, but are not limited to:

    • Semantic web approaches to interlinking digitized historical archives and collections
    • Text and image interpretation in digital collections
    • Multimodal collection interpretation and access
    • Handwriting recognition and heterogeneous digital collections
    • Machine learning and digital collections
    • Bias and digital heritage
    • Computer vision and digital collections
    • Digital collections’ access and inclusivity
    • Sharing and visualisation of heterogeneous historical archives and collections
    • Citizen science (including crowdsourcing) and digital archives and collections
    • Challenges of enriching digitized handwritten archive material
    • Digital capture and annotation of heterogeneous collections and artefacts
    • Dealing with uncertainty, quality issues, data bias and collection gaps
    • Geographical and spatial enrichment of collections
    • Application of common vocabularies and data reconciliation

The Science of #Sarcasm? Yeah, Right


In an episode of “The Simpsons,” the Comic Book Guy’s sarcasm causes Professor Frink’s sarcasm detector to implode. (©2003THE SIMPSONS and TTCFFC ALL RIGHTS RESERVED FOX)

How do humans separate sarcasm from sincerity? Research on the subject is leading to insights about how the mind works. Really…

n an episode of “The Simpsons,” mad scientist Professor Frink demonstrates his latest creation: a sarcasm detector.

“Sarcasm detector? That’s a really useful invention,” says another character, the Comic Book Guy, causing the machine to explode.

Actually, scientists are finding that the ability to detect sarcasm really is useful. For the past 20 years, researchers from linguists to psychologists to neurologists have been studying our ability to perceive snarky remarks and gaining new insights into how the mind works. Studies have shown that exposure to sarcasm enhances creative problem solving, for instance. Children understand and use sarcasm by the time they get to kindergarten. An inability to understand sarcasm may be an early warning sign of brain disease.

Sarcasm detection is an essential skill if one is going to function in a modern society dripping with irony. “Our culture in particular is permeated with sarcasm,” says Katherine Rankin, a neuropsychologist at the University of California at San Francisco. “People who don’t understand sarcasm are immediately noticed. They’re not getting it. They’re not socially adept.”

Sarcasm so saturates 21st-century America that according to one study of a database of telephone conversations, 23 percent of the time that the phrase “yeah, right” was used, it was uttered sarcastically. Entire phrases have almost lost their literal meanings because they are so frequently said with a sneer. “Big deal,” for example. When’s the last time someone said that to you and meant it sincerely? “My heart bleeds for you” almost always equals “Tell it to someone who cares,” and “Aren’t you special” means you aren’t.

“It’s practically the primary language” in modern society, says John Haiman, a linguist at Macalester College in St. Paul, Minnesota, and the author of Talk is Cheap: Sarcasm, Alienation and the Evolution of Language.

Sarcasm seems to exercise the brain more than sincere statements do. Scientists who have monitored the electrical activity of the brains of test subjects exposed to sarcastic statements have found that brains have to work harder to understand sarcasm.

That extra work may make our brains sharper, according to another study. College students in Israel listened to complaints to a cellphone company’s customer service line. The students were better able to solve problems creatively when the complaints were sarcastic as opposed to just plain angry. Sarcasm “appears to stimulate complex thinking and to attenuate the otherwise negative effects of anger,” according to the study authors.

The mental gymnastics needed to perceive sarcasm includes developing a “theory of mind” to see beyond the literal meaning of the words and understand that the speaker may be thinking of something entirely different. A theory of mind allows you to realize that when your brother says “nice job” when you spill the milk, he means just the opposite, the jerk.

Sarcastic statements are sort of a true lie. You’re saying something you don’t literally mean, and the communication works as intended only if your listener gets that you’re insincere. Sarcasm has a two-faced quality: it’s both funny and mean. This dual nature has led to contradictory theories on why we use it.

Some language experts suggest sarcasm is used as a sort of gentler insult, a way to tone down criticism with indirectness and humor. “How do you keep this room so neat?” a parent might say to a child, instead of “This room is a sty.”

But others researchers have found that the mocking, smug, superior nature of sarcasm is perceived as more hurtful than a plain-spoken criticism. The Greek root for sarcasm, sarkazein, means to tear flesh like dogs.

According to Haiman, dog-eat-dog sarcastic commentary is just part of our quest to be cool. “You’re distancing yourself, you’re making yourself superior,” Haiman says. “If you’re sincere all the time, you seem naive.”

Sarcasm is also a handy tool. Most of us go through life expecting things to turn out well, says Penny Pexman, a University of Calgary psychologist who has been studying sarcasm for more than 20 years. Otherwise, no one would plan an outdoor wedding. When things go sour, Pexman says, a sarcastic comment is a way to simultaneously express our expectation as well as our disappointment. When a downpour spoils a picnic and you quip, “We picked a fine day for this,” you’re saying both that you had hoped it would be sunny and you’re upset about the rain.

We’re more likely to use sarcasm with our friends than our enemies, Pexman says. “There does seem to be truth to the old adage that you tend to tease the ones you love,” she says.

But among strangers, sarcasm use soars if the conversation is via an anonymous computer chat room as opposed to face to face, according to a study by Jeffrey Hancock, a communications professor at Cornell University. This may be because it’s safer to risk some biting humor with someone you’re never going to meet. He also noted that conversations typed on a computer take more time than a face to face discussion. People may use that extra time to construct more complicated ironic statements.

Kids pick up the ability to detect sarcasm at a young age. Pexman and her colleagues in Calgary showed children short puppet shows in which one of the puppets made either a literal or a sarcastic statement. The children were asked to put a toy duck in a box if they thought the puppet was being nice. If they thought the puppet was being mean, they were supposed to put a toy shark in a box. Children as young as 5 were able to detect sarcastic statements quickly.

Pexman said she has encountered children as young as 4 who say, “smooth move, mom” at a parent’s mistake. And she says parents who report being sarcastic themselves have kids who are better at understanding sarcasm.

There appear to be regional variations in sarcasm. A study that compared college students from upstate New York with students from near Memphis, Tennessee, found that the Northerners were more likely to suggest sarcastic jibes when asked to fill in the dialogue in a hypothetical conversation.

Northerners also were more likely to think sarcasm was funny: 56 percent of Northerners found sarcasm humorous while only 35 percent of Southerners did. The New Yorkers and male students from either location were more likely to describe themselves as sarcastic.

There isn’t just one way to be sarcastic or a single sarcastic tone of voice. In his book, Haiman lists more than two dozen ways that a speaker or a writer can indicate sarcasm with pitch, tone, volume, pauses, duration and punctuation. For example: “Excuse me” is sincere. “Excuuuuuse me” is sarcastic, meaning, “I’m not sorry.”

According to Haiman, a sarcastic version of “thank you” comes out as a nasal “thank yewww” because speaking the words in a derisive snort wrinkles up your nose into an expression of disgust. That creates a primitive signal of insincerity, Haiman says. The message: These words taste bad in my mouth and I don’t mean them.

In an experiment by Patricia Rockwell, a sarcasm expert at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette, observers watched the facial expressions of people making sarcastic statements. Expressions around the mouth, as opposed to the eyes or eyebrows, were most often cited as a clue to a sarcastic statement.

The eyes may also be a giveaway. Researchers from California Polytechnic University found that test subjects who were asked to make sarcastic statements were less likely to look the listener in the eye. The researchers suggest that lack of eye contact is a signal to the listener: “This statement is a lie.”

Another experiment that analyzed sarcasm in American TV sitcoms asserted that there’s a “blank face” version of sarcasm delivery.

Despite all these clues, detecting sarcasm can be difficult. There are a lot of things that can cause our sarcasm detectors to break down, scientists are finding. Conditions including autism, closed head injuries, brain lesions and schizophrenia can interfere with the ability to perceive sarcasm.

Researchers at the University of California at San Francisco, for example, recently found that people with frontotemporal dementia have difficulty detecting sarcasm. Neuropsychologist Katherine Rankin has suggested that a loss of the ability to pick up on sarcasm could be used as an early warning sign to help diagnose the disease. “If someone who has the sensitivity loses it, that’s a bad sign,” Rankin says. “If you suddenly think Stephen Colbert is truly right wing, that’s when I would worry.”

Many parts of the brain are involved in processing sarcasm, according to recent brain imaging studies. Rankin has found that the temporal lobes and the parahippocampus are involved in picking up the sarcastic tone of voice. While the left hemisphere of the brain seems to be responsible for interpreting literal statements, the right hemisphere and both frontal lobes seem to be involved in figuring out when the literal statement is intended to mean exactly the opposite, according to a study by researchers at the University of Haifa.

Or you could just get a sarcasm detection device. It turns out scientists can program a computer to recognize sarcasm. Last year, Hebrew University computer scientists in Jerusalem developed their “Semi-supervised Algorithm for Sarcasm Identification.” The program was able to catch 77 percent of the sarcastic statements in Amazon purchaser comments like “Great for insomniacs” in a book review. The scientists say that a computer that could recognize sarcasm could do a better job of summarizing user opinions in product reviews.

The University of Southern California’s Signal Analysis and Interpretation Laboratory announced in 2006 that their “automatic sarcasm recognizer,” a set of computer algorithms, was able to recognize sarcastic versions of “yeah, right” in recorded telephone conversations more than 80 percent of the time. The researchers suggest that a computerized phone operator that understands sarcasm can be programmed to “get” the joke with “synthetic laughter.”
