Coffee & Viz: Thinking (and Teaching) Critically for Data Visualization

Angela Zoss, assessment and data visualization analyst at Duke University Libraries, will present an early reworking of our visualization best practices. Rather than simply focusing on the standard guidelines that are circulated for data visualization design, Zoss will interweave design guidelines with a more nuanced view of how designers, visualizations and audiences participate in a complex dance to create meaning.

She will also reflect on the dangers of standardization, a practice so often revered in data visualization but which invariably excludes topics, approaches and even people that fail to fall within agreed-upon boundaries.

Complimentary coffee, tea and light refreshments from local business Anisette will be available beginning at 9:15 a.m. in an adjacent space. To help increase the sustainability of this program, please bring your own coffee mug.
