Making, Curating, and Engaging Data
March 3, 2017, 4-5pm (PST)
Room 111, the Information Studies (GSEIS) building. See map here.
How does scientific and scholarly data get made and how can we curate and make useful data? What does the pipeline look like? What gets lost along the way? How are data situated and inflected? What interpretations are made possible and not? What role does the frontend of tools and delivery systems play? The expertise of the invited seminar participants ranges from decades of curatorial work in the British Library, long-term processing of genome data, structuring of testimonies from atrocities, to extensive work on the ecology of astronomy and other scientific data. This UCLA Digital Humanities seminar uses a conversational format and invites the audience to participate in the hour-long event conversation.
