CFP: "The History and Future of Data Visualization" (Digital Humanities Caucus)

Panel Organizer: Lauren Klein, Georgia Tech

According to the New York Times, the "next big thing" for the humanities is data. But scholars of the eighteenth century have long recognized that era as the one in which taxonomical representation of data, and related forms of visual display, rose to the fore. This panel seeks papers that address the history and future of data visualization, broadly conceived. Topics may include: data-mining and visualization techniques applied to eighteenth-century texts; eighteenth-century ideas about—and approaches to—data, and related forms of display; creative uses and/or theorizations of digital tools for teaching and research.

Please send 250 word abstract and 1-page CV to Lauren Klein, lauren.klein@lcc.gatech.edu before Saturday, September 15th.
