Acord, Associate Director, Center for the Humanities and the Public Sphere, skacord@ufl.edu Discussion: Why Visualize? UF DH Project Showcase In reflecting upon another successful year of UF DHWG events faculty member and graduate students are invited to join us for ct Showcase online, and showcase many of the UF DH projects that have been done, projects that are underway, and projects that are in planning, with opportunities for potential collaborators. The UF DH Project Showcase will start the conversation for Fall we would use visualization in our individual and collaborative work. Our conversa tions this year will build into the plans for the first UF THATCamp on April 24 25, 2014. Our conversations also continue to create collaborative opportunities, with several collaborative DH projects that are underway starting in the DHWG. Our work also in forms possible recommendations and topics for consideration by the university, as well as our own community of practice in the DHWG. Potential Discussion Topics: What concerns do we have for our own ability to create and use visualizations ? What would taught with librarians, instructional designers, and/or IT professionals) for learning to create and use visualizations look like? What would a lab look like? What about other venues for learning about visualization? Wh at would an annual DH & Technology bootcamp look like? What about a collaborative workshop with Research Computing and Fine Arts? Digital Humanities Working Group The UF Digital Humanities Working Group (DHWG) is a group of academic and library faculty, staff, and graduate students who meet monthly to discuss current projects and topics at the intersection of digital technologies and core research needs and question s in the humanities disciplines. The Fall 2013 working groups will include discussions on the theme of visualization. We will discuss visualization curation as a scholarly activity for use in interpretive and investigative research processes and how schol ars can collaborate with librarians and archivists to think critically and productively about visualizing research for work with scholarly communities and wider publics. The DHWG will also schedule separate workshops for those interested in th e use and application of different tools for visualization.
