SEEING/KNOWING: Using Visualization as a Research Instrument

Wednesday, 1 May 2019
11.30am – 3.00pm, University of Cambridge

Workshop conveners: Professor Johanna Drucker (UCLA); Dr Anne Alexander (Cambridge Digital Humanities) 

Visualization is a primary mode of knowledge production, but it is often used as a secondary mode of display in highly conventional formats that limit the conceptual dimensions of research. The goal of the workshop is to explore possibilities for innovations in visualization that will expand the vocabulary of current standards in ways that might suit humanities researchers working in digital methods. To do this, we intend to explore three ongoing projects as in-depth case studies that allow us to consider several fundamental data-types and structures within digital humanities work: ontologies/typologies (classification systems), mapping/spatial visualization; chronology/temporality.
