10:00 am - 5:00 pm    Landscape and Lace: Cache Valley

Arts & Entertainment / Caine College of the Arts

By Megan Mitchell. Fences, doors and windows indicate an intersection between inside and outside, public and private. These porous boundaries provide enclosure while also allowing access to an outside world. I am drawn to these divisions in space both as aesthetic and metaphorical objects. They are the point of departure for an exploration of the intersection between real and imagined worlds. 'Landscape and Lace: Cache Valley' juxtaposes the structural framework of a fence with a landscape inspired by Cache Valley. My intention is to provide a sense of both containment and spaciousness. The piece also contains a decorative element which is derived from a sample of lace. I use this pattern to further the dialog between inner and outer spaces.

10:00 am - 5:00 pm    Good Neighbors

Arts & Entertainment / Caine College of the Arts

Good Neighbors by Todd Hayes features a seven-foot-tall wooden fence enclosing a seven-by-twelve foot plot. After a futile search for a gate, viewers peer through the small slit openings & spy a small porcelain house standing in a yard comprised of salt. The house is a mid-century ranch style house, exactly the kind that sprang up in suburban developments around the country after World War II. Though good fences may make good neighbors—as the saying goes—this fence completely cuts off any relationship to the outside world.

3:30 pm - 5:00 pm    Effective and Responsible Citation Analysis

Presentation/Speeches / Provost Office

Dr. Bruce Bugbee, professor of crop physiology in the Department of Plants, Soils, and Climate, will discuss "Effective and Responsible Citation Analysis." Citation metrics are being increasingly used by faculty to make their case for promotion. Because these data are easy to access on-line, they are also frequently used by reviewers to evaluate research accomplishments. Like any statistical procedure, citation metrics can be used and interpreted appropriately or inappropriately. This seminar will review common citation metrics (h-index, g-index, and variations) and discuss effective and responsible ways to use them to make a case for promotion. Given the variation among disciplines in citation metrics, the responsible interpretation of the data will also be discussed.
