humanities + digital Visual Interpretations conference May 2010

How do visual representations of complex data help humanities scholars ask new questions? How does visual rhetoric shape the way we relate to documents and artifacts? And, can we recompose the field of digital humanities to integrate more dynamic analytical methods into humanities research? HyperStudio’s Visual Interpretations conference brought digital practitioners and humanities scholars together with experts in art and design to consider the past, present, and future of visual epistemology in digital humanities.
