At the end of September, the University of Miami will bring together expert practitioners from both the fields of data journalism and digital humanities for 3 days of keynotes, dialogue, and skill-building workshops. You'll have opportunities to learn about using network visualizations effectively, obtaining and cleaning data, and creating infographics.
Our three keynote speakers are Dan Cohen (Digital Public Library of America), Scott Klein (ProPublica), and Lauren Klein (Georgia Tech); additional speakers are from Knight Lab, the BBC News Labs, FiveThirtyEight.com, and Mashable, as well as digital humanists from Stanford, and Carnegie Mellon.
The format will be a mixture of talks and workshops, in order to bring together both experienced and novice practitioners to learn and discuss the conjunction of DH research and data journalism; including writing for and communicating with both academic and public audiences.
This will be a unique gathering -- and all the more valuable, since it takes place in an election year. Visit our website for details on registration and lodging, and to see the full schedule.
