GRAPHS is the third workshop in our Rewiring Consent: Data Visualization & Social Justice series
Bar charts and scatterplots are a feature of administrative reports and journalistic reporting. Often they are gorgeous to look at. But to what degree are they legible? How well do they serve humanist arguments? How do we account for their aesthetic effects? In this workshop, Clery records of campus assault will be plotted on campus climate information extracted from IU’s Twitter stream. On the one hand, our mission will be to evaluate what should count as correlative or causal information. On the other, we will consider what happens when a crime is subsumed within a probabilistic exercise.
