DVS Workshop: Making Data Visual

Events - All Combined (Huginn Feed) - Thu, 2016-09-29 14:00
Thu, Sep 29, 2016
10:00 AM - 11:30 AM
Bostock Library 023(Library Classroom)
The process of making data visual can be nuanced and iterative. Sometimes we start a project with a very specific idea of the kind of visualization we want, but other times we may not be sure what will work best. This workshop will address three important aspects of making data visual: identifying the goal of your visualization, identifying the audience of your visualization, and understanding the pros and cons of different types of visualizations. This workshop will focus not on any specific software application, but instead will focus on helping attendees develop instincts for what kinds of visualizations match well with particular datasets, goals, and audiences. The emphasis for this workshop will be on standard visualization types, like bar charts and scatter plots, rather than non-traditional visualizations or graphics.

An eloquent poet, writer and performer, Maya Angelou's life intersected with the civil rights struggle, the Harlem Writers Guild, the New Africa movement, the women's movement, and the cultural and political realignments of the 1970s and '80s. Having lived such a rich, passionate life and been a witness, as well as a participant, in some of the most profound periods of the last century, her full biography is extraordinarily rich and varied. Dr. Angelou lived not one life, but half a dozen, and yet parts of her story have fallen into obscurity. This documentary reflects on how the events of history, culture and the arts shaped her life and how she, in turn, helped shape our own worldview through her autobiographical literature and activism.
