Event: Visualising Data Workshop, Oxford, April 2014

We are delighted to be able to announce our first project workshop on Visualising Data, part of our Epistemologies research theme. We anticipate that the workshop will be of interest to many people (not just from large projects!) interested in the potential benefits and pitfalls of visualising large historical datasets.

Along the way, we’ll be reflecting on one of our key research questions:

What can visualisation techniques tell us about the overall shape/distinctive patterns in the data, and what does this reveal about the various processes by which the data were created, and their constraints/limitations?

We’re in the process of exploring data visualisation techniques that will enable us to analyse the datasets both individually and collectively, and members of the project team will talk and invite discussion about both the academic and technical challenges this presents. But we also have three excellent external speakers to provide perspectives from a range of fields and projects: Rob Procter (Warwick), Min Chen (Oxford) and William Allen (Oxford).

It’s an afternoon workshop which we hope will enable as many UK-based people as possible to make a one-day trip of it.
