Lewis Ulman (English) to explore the place of data visualization as a form of humanities scholarship,  with visualization as the hermeneutic act that allows humanists to read “big data.” Questions will center around defining “big data” in the context of the humanities: how humanists read big data, how our interests and goals with reading big data differ from that of scientists, and how visualization and visual hermeneutics is critical to the effort to read that data.

Technology Issues. A few students are experiencing problems with the Open Studio Request Calendars — this is perhaps because their computer's time zone settings or their Google Calendar account time zone settings are not set to the local time zone. If you are experiencing this problem, follow the steps below and let Melissa Bontempo know if you are still having problems or if you have any other questions:

If you have a MAC, try clicking on the time in the top right hand corner of your screen, open "Date & Time" Preferences and make sure your time zone is set to "Eastern Daylight." If that doesn't work, go to your Google Calendar settings page (under the main gear menu) and make sure that is set to "Eastern Daylight" as well. More info on this issue can be found here.

Production & Technology Resources
