Open Access is “the free, immediate, online availability of research articles combined with the rights to use these articles fully in the digital environment.” International Open Access Week, now in its 10th year, is an opportunity to take action in making openness the default for research to turn discoveries into better lives.

This year’s theme is “Open for Whom? Equity in Open Knowledge.” In observance of Open Access Month, join us for a presentation by IUP faculty.

Intrusion is a solo play with eight characters played by Qurrat Ann Kadwani. Twenty years in the future, sexual violence has been eradicated until one woman comes forward about her rape.

Audiences of all backgrounds and ages can see how we all contribute to the perpetuation of rape culture by understanding how this event affects different sectors of our society. The Narrator is a college student who motivates the audience to speak up and finds her voice. Other characters include Journalist, Prosecutor, Daytrader, Politician, Psychologist, 3rd Grader, and Professor who help the audience learn about sexual violence statistics, Title IX history, self-defense moves, and the complexity of sexual violence against women.

Folger Hall Private Dining Room

Monday, November 18, 2019

Known for her representation as Brendan Dassey’s lawyer in the Netflix series Making a Murderer and Damien Echols of the notorious West Memphis Three case, Laura Nirider is the co-director of the Center on Wrongful Convictions. Nearly a quarter of all wrongful convictions involve individuals who falsely confessed to crimes they didn’t commit.

Nirider introduces her audience to this fascinating psychological phenomenon and uses stories of real-life murder interrogations to explain how commonly used interrogation tactics can cause not only the guilty, but also the  innocent, to confess. She blows up common myths about the justice system and explains why children are particularly likely to falsely confess to crimes they didn’t commit. Along the way, she will share her inspirational personal story of professional dream-chasing.
