April 4th unCOMMON Salon: Data, Data Visualization, and Literary Analysis

The first unCOMMON Salon of Spring 2017 is coming up! NYU’s own Moacir P. de Sá Pereira will be presenting “Data, Data Visualization, and Literary Analysis: From NYWalker to Essay.”

How are data and literary analysis linked? How can we move from quantitative information stored within a novel to make a qualitative assessment of it? NYU Professor Moacir P. de Sá Pereira will discuss moving from collecting geographic information in a literary text to visualizing it to turning that into an act of literary criticism.

Time: 6 p.m. – p.m.
Date: Tuesday, April 4th
Location: Bobst Library, Room 745 (Floor 7, Avery Fisher Center)

Light refreshments will be served, and all are welcome! We’d greatly appreciate an RSVP.

This Salon is sponsored by the Bobst Library Reference Departments (Business & Government Documents, Coles Science Center, and Social Sciences & Humanities Reference Center).
