DHSI 2018


 Digital Humanities Summer Institute |  June 4-8, 2018| University of Victoria | MacLaurin D107

Course Description

DATA VISUALIZATION – the representation of information through images – is a powerful and innovative tool for extending traditional methods of research toward new audiences and ends. In this workshop, we will explore ways to creatively visualize data for research, rendering information more useful, engaging and accessible.

From boutique data to big data, we will examine both qualitative and quantitative datasets to create a variety of visualizations, including illustrations, mindmaps, infographics, sparklines, data matrices, and interactive graphic displays. Over the course of the week, participants will work with open source platforms and tools for translating data into visual and interactive forms, while discussing principles of narrative, audience, and design.
