Workshop 7 – Presenting Thought in Progress

3 graphical Visualization workshops
  • Are you a student in the humanities, in visual arts and and media arts, and planning on participating in the EmergingResearchers’ Symposium – Re-Create 2015?
  • Are you an instructor or researcher concerned about how to present your research results or works in progress?
  • Are you an artist interested in what research can bring to graphic thinking?

Join us for visualization workshops for ongoing research!

What better way than graphic representation to get inside the black box of a research project in progress? Graphs, mind maps, data trees, and more: data visualization is a useful way to present preliminary results and conceptualize the research process. This not only makes broader dissemination and recognition of academic work possible, but also differently frames and configures researchers’ modes of functioning. A variety of skills are required: synthesis, identifying implicit categories and connections, manipulating visual codes, deconstructing linear discursive thought, research-creation, esthetics… Remarkably difficult to achieve in isolation, this type of visual translation constitutes a privileged opportunity for collective intelligence.

Hexagram and Myriam Suchet, Chair for the Study of Contemporary France, 2014-2015 and Visiting Professor at the Department of Comparative Literature at the University of Montreal, invite you to participate in a three-part workshop:
