Data Visualization and the Humanities

 Library Fellows Presentation

Presentation: Data Visualization
Fellowship: Project Proposal 

About the Project

Libraries, maps, network graphs and datasets reflect and shape the work of scholars in the humanities. This library fellows course provided an overview of the way that literary and historical scholars organized, analyzed, and presented their research to each other and the public using data visualization. The course included theoretical, historical and practical work, sourcing materials from the library’s special collections and elsewhere in the library.
