Humanizing Data: Data, Humanities, and the City

April 8 @ 9:00 am8:30 pm

Free

This day-long sym­po­sium exam­i­nes how we can use data and dig­i­tal strate­gies to enhance and dis­rupt the kinds of research ques­tions, meth­ods, and nar­ra­tives that define the human­i­ties. It also com­pli­cates the role of the urban uni­ver­si­ty in a glob­al “city-state” such as New York, where the bound­aries between uni­ver­si­ty and city are quite blurred. This sym­po­sium is an oppor­tu­ni­ty to rethink our alliances, forge stronger and more equal rela­tion­ships between uni­ver­si­ty-affil­i­at­ed researchers and com­mu­ni­ty-based orga­ni­za­tions, and ampli­fy oppor­tu­ni­ties to share both resources and author­ship with one anoth­er.
