Studio Project

Equity at Iowa

The Equity at Iowa project is a collaboration between Judith Pascoe (UI English Professor) and Wendy Robertson (University of Iowa Digital Scholarship Librarian), who are working with Nikki White (Digital Humanities Research and Instruction Librarian) and Ethan DeGross (Researcher/Developer) to explore the open data found in the Iowa State Employee Salary Book. In honor of Women’s History Month, each business day of March 2016, we will be pairing a digital photo from the Iowa Women’s Archive or University Archives with a bar chart or graph that makes visible gender differences in professional status and salary allocation, as well as patterns of change across time.
