Data Visualization as an Ethical Act: Data visualization is not a new concept, but in today’s data-rich world we rely on visualization to make meaningful connections to our professional work and personal lives. How do we discern the intent and intentionality of a data visualization? This presentation will showcase visualizations spanning from the 19th century to today and beyond.

Come to Hagfors 151 just prior to the Faculty Meeting to hear more on this fascinating subject.
