In conjunction with the online workshop Between Technology and Theory: Data and Distance we are pleased to offer this research training seminar Mapping and Data Visualisation for Beginners.

Of particular relevance for students and early career researchers, the seminar may be of interest to anyone seeking to take the first steps in integrating some digital techniques into their research. No prior knowledge, or specific software, is required to attend this session. 

The seminar will be split into two parts. The first will introduce some options for building maps to display and organise geographical data derived from humanities research topics. The second will discuss how to organise archival information so that it can be analysed with graphic charts and data visualization. There will be ample time for participant questions. 

Rheagan Martin is Center for Advanced Study in Visual Arts Predoctoral Fellow, whose research analyses fifteenth-century book production as a set of technologies that influenced visual and material culture in Venice. 

Louisa McKenzie holds a PhD in Art History from the Warburg Institute, and her LAHP-funded research included a project to map wax workshops and artisanal workshops in Florence 1300-1500.
