    Abstract:

    Though the transition from the Trump administration to the Biden administration occurred on January 20, 2021 as envisioned in the Constitution, the Presidential Transition Index (PTI) team found that only 76 percent of transition provisions were fulfilled. Delays and uncertainty defined what was perhaps the most closely watched and politically fraught transition in modern United States history. Most of these disruptions stemmed from President Trump’s refusal to concede defeat, which caused a …

    Abstract:

    Climate change has been slow to enter the public dialogue in the Midwest, but this is changing as local residents are experiencing more volatile weather, extreme temperatures, floods, changing growing seasons, and fewer snow days. The past several decades have witnessed increasingly intense weather extremes, resulting in costly damage throughout the region. In 2019, following a winter arctic air outbreak (“polar vortex”) that delivered near-record low temperatures in many areas (for example, …

    Abstract:

    Pervasive sexual violence against women and girls in Guatemala, Honduras, and El Salvador (including rape, domestic and sexual servitude, sexual assault, forced disappearances, human trafficking, and even murder) perpetrated by gangs, narco-traffickers, human traffickers, and a machismo culture fueled by corruption and impunity has led to some of the highest rates of violence against women and girls in the world, forcing these women and girls to flee and migrate to the United States. While t…

    Abstract:

    The majority of studies on the future of work are predictive in nature, often taking a bird’s-eye view that overlooks the importance of local context. This brief presents six scenarios of the futures of work in South Bend that emphasize stress-point events and phenomena in the larger social, political, technological, and economic environment, with a time horizon of 15 years (2035). The scenarios are geographically focused on the city, but refer to the global situation; in the narratives, the …

    Abstract:

    In August of 2018, the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) awarded a National Leadership/Planning grant to the University of Notre Dame to investigate the national need for library based topic modelling tools in support of cross-disciplinary discovery systems. The grant would enable our project team to conduct a series of workshops where we could bring together communities of expertise (computer scientists, librarians, disciplinary scholars) from diverse organizations (large and s…
