For scholars who want to generate complex ethnographic data
and visualize it in ways that enhance intelligibility, insight and human understanding
The VizE Lab for Ethnographic Data Visualization was initiated in 2017 as a place for scholars who want to explore new ways to collect and visualize diverse forms of ethnographic data. In particular, the Lab is devoted to bringing data visualization and documentary media together in ethnographies that include expansive data sets and person-centered perspectives. The lab advises students and collaborates with scholars in their research and offers a studio space where colleagues can workshop visual data and creatively brainstorm new projects using a giant interactive visualization wall.
