Graphic provocations: what do digital humanists want from visualization?
Sir David Davies Lecture Theatre, Room G08 |
Malet Place | London | WC1E 7JE | United Kingdom
Ticketing: Pre-booking essential
In our second instalment of The Susan Hockey Lecture series, Professor Johanna Drucker will discuss various approaches to visualization, and how these can or could be used by digital humanists.
Digital humanists have adopted visualization methods from a variety of other disciplines, but do they serve the interpretative approaches of the humanities? How might aesthetics and epistemology find common ground and build on conventions from a broader range of visual arts, architectural design, and other graphical techniques? Can we move beyond reductive approaches that turn complex historical and literary phenomena into "data" and expose other aspects of the partial, situated, and constructed character of humanistic work? This talk outlines design principles for engaging with graphical means of interpretation that extend beyond current presentational tools into analytic, speculative, and provocative approaches.
