The MA Program in Digital Humanities and the MS Program in Data Analysis and Visualization are holding two in person events tonight, May 15th, that may be of interest. At The CUNY Graduate Center, 365 5th Ave.
The first event is a roundtable discussion that concludes our Spring “Methods of Text Analysis” course; the second event is a poster-style session, with students presenting projects from our “Visualization and Design” course.
Feminist Text Analysis Roundtable
Monday, May 15th, 4:15 – 6:15 PM
Description: During the Spring 2023 semester, students in the Methods of Text Analysis class have considered whether or not there is or can be such a thing as feminist text analysis. Alternatively, is feminism—and other forms of cultural critique—always an intervention or response? This roundtable is the culminating event for the Methods of Text Analysis class in which students will present short 5-minute provocations intended to open up to larger group discussion.
Visualization and Design Final Review
Monday, May 15th, 6:30 – 8:25 PM
Description: This year’s projects are extremely compelling. Multiple projects grapple with the challenge of making qualitative, textured data visible and inviting readers to see data as both an abstraction and concrete experience. Others try to make sense of our cultural moment by investigating book bans, gaming & anxiety, and religion. Still others focus on New York City, its hospitals, taxis, and people.
