Data/Visualization Tools in the Humanities: from Excel to XML (and beyond)

Date: Thursday, April 8, 2:30-4:00pm
Location: UCLA, Visualization Portal (5628 Math Sciences)
Presentation by Libbie Stephenson (Director, ISR Data Archive)

This IDRE-HASIS Tool Time! event will focus on the ways that you can work with web-based tools and humanities-focused data resources. Humanities scholars have found that they spend a significant amount of time “massaging” their materials to prepare various types of analysis or visualizations for their research or classroom. To address this problem, many data sites are providing integrated online tools.

The seminar will include a demonstration of the Teaching With Data portal and the data analysis/visualization tools available through the Cultural Policy and the Arts National Data Archive (CPANDA). Come learn how to find, use, and visualize materials using a variety of techniques with software supported at UCLA.

Seating is limited, please RSVP.
