Data sonification is the process of representing data audibly. By transforming data points into acoustical signals, sonification can facilitate novel or enhanced interpretation of the data -- alone or in conjunction with other analytical and visualization tools. This seminar will explore the status of data sonification, how it is created, how it can be used to supplement data visualization techniques, and how it can create multi-sensory immersive data experiences. I will present several data sonification projects spanning a variety of topical disciplines from economics to geology, and provide a brief walkthrough on how to create your own.

In Pakistan, more than 1000 women perceived as having compromised the "honor" of their families are reported to be killed each year. Families are often pressured to forgive and absolve the aggressors, which allows them to return to the community. Told through the lens of a love story, this Oscar-nominated documentary examines the tensions between modernism and tradition in Pakistan. Directed by Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy (Oscar-winning Saving Face), the film follows Saba, a young Pakistani woman, who has survived her attempted honor killing by her own family.

Python is an extremely useful, general purpose, human readable programming language, and it’s great for tabular data gathering, cleaning, analysis and visualization! In this introductory workshop, you’ll get a glimpse of how to use Jupyter notebooks and Python to transform and explore a couple of different data sets using online tools. You’ll need a laptop to do the hands-on activities, but no previous experience or any Python installation is necessary!
