LEXINGTON, Ky. (April 10, 2017) — This week, the University of Kentucky Center for Research on Violence Against Women (CRVAW) will present the fourth lecture of their series "Researching Violence: Challenges, Strategies, and Practices."
Claire Renzetti, professor and chair of the UK Department of Sociology, and the Judy Conway Patton Endowed Chair for CRVAW, will deliver the lecture titled "Benefits and Challenges of Using Amazon's Mechanical Turk for Studying Violence Against Women" at noon, Wednesday, April 12, in Room 115 of the UK College of Nursing.
The endowed faculty at the center are presenting topics over the next several years regarding the challenges of measuring violence against women and potential strategies for conducting this research. The focus is on conceptual and practical approaches to this field rather than presenting research findings of specific studies. The goal is to provide information to researchers and organizational personnel that may enhance their own planning and projects.
Light refreshments will be provided and parking is available at the Rose Street Parking Garage and the University Drive Garage (for E-Lot passes).
