Data Visualization for the Arts and Humanities

Activity: Participating in or organising an event typesParticipation in workshop, seminar, course


This event reflects a partnership between the AHRC-funded project “Visualising European Crime Fiction” and The Digital Arts and Humanities (DAH) structured PhD programme in collaboration with the Digital Humanities Research Group at the Institute for Collaborative Research in the Humanities. Data Visualisation for the Arts and Humanities’ was a two-day event at QUB, 5-6 March 2015. It included hands on workshops and invited speakers addressing practical as well as theoretical features of data visualisation. Through this mix of practice and theory participants were provided with a comprehensive introduction to the potentialities of applying this approach (which is seminal to my research) to their own activities in the Arts and the Humanities. Keynote speakers: Dr. Marc Alexander (University of Glasgow); Dr. Clement Levallois (EMLYON Business School) Workshops include ‘Data Visualisation and Digital Art’ ; ‘Data-mining the Semantic Web and spatially visualising the results’ ; ‘Introduction to Data Visualization in the Humanities: Palladio, Gephi and QuantumGIS’with Christoph Kudella
