For scholars who want to generate complex ethnographic data
and visualize it in ways that enhance intelligibility, insight and empathy
Starting up this year, the VizE Lab is a hybrid online-offline lab devoted to using digital data and media to create innovative ethnographies. The lab offers an on-line platform for curating and protecting ethnographic data and for publishing research in multiple audio-visual forms, such as data visualization and documentary film. In the Lab's meeting space, colleagues can workshop a variety of visual media or creatively brainstorm new projects on our giant interactive visualization wall. In addition to hosting and supporting individual projects, the VizE Lab offers practical workshops and critical discussions of emerging forms of visual ethnography.
Bring us your data! We're eager to collaborate with you on creating data visualizations, maps, timelines, and film modules that can be incorporated into projects that expand the ethnographic universe.
