EVENT | Apr. 9 — unCOMMON Salon: Rogues, Rebels, and Revolutionaries – A History of Data Visualization

ROUGES, REBELS, AND REVOLUTIONARIES:
A History of Data Visualization

Presented by Michael Diamond
Academic Director of the Integrated Marketing and Communications department at NYU’s School of Professional Studies

Tuesday, April 9, 6:00 PM-7:00 PM
Elmer Holmes Bobst Library, Room 745

Open to the Public | Light refreshments will be served

The practice of data visualization emerged in the eighteenth century as a discipline tied to science and political economy. Over the next few centuries, the field was driven by a series of radical innovators.  They used their innate creativity and natural instinct for storytelling, harnessed to the power of human vision, to invent, re-make and literally re-shape the graphs and charts we know and love today. This talk explores the story of pioneers such as William Playfair, Charles Minard, Florence Nightingale, W.E.B. Du Bois, John Tukey, and Hans Rosling — who not only charted the course for the discipline but used data visualization to drive change in society and find a signal in the noise.
