Capturing and Communicating Narratives of Efforts to Address Food Insecurity 
Philip Asare, Arsh Noor Amin, Bucknell University

The goal of this session is to engage participants in a conversation about our wok on capturing and sharing narratives of those who interact with programs addressing food insecurity. We hope that this discussion can be applicable to capturing and sharing narratives in other domains. We began this work with a pilot study at the Lewisburg Community Garden (LCG) in summer of 2018 which were are running again in summer 2019 with three community gardens including the LCG. Some of our preliminary insights from the 2018 study were that although people came to the LCG for various reasons, some of the more memorable moments were the personal interactions they had with others at the garden, and especially on difficult days, having people to lean on for help was important.

Using Digital Tools to Create an Inventory of Gender-Neutral Bathrooms at the University of Notre Dame 
Matthew L Sisk, Pam Butler, University of Notre Dame

Sparked during a conversation about classroom applications of digital scholarship, this project combines an important social justice issue with digital tools. Since Fall 2017, Gender Studies students, with the support of the Navari Family Center for Digital Scholarship, have collected data in the field, locating and evaluating the single-occupancy all-genders bathrooms on Notre Dame's campus to create a map that helps members of the campus community find the facilities they need. These data have been collated into a database and a webmap (https://genderstudies.nd.edu/bathrooms/). While the project has met with significant support and success, we will also present on future directions and ways this work can be extended to other campuses with similar needs.
