CONCEPT MODELING: Non-representational approaches to visualizing interpretation Professor Johanna Drucker
Professor Johanna Drucker will present work-in-progress from the 3DH (3-Dimensional/Digital Humanities) project begun at the University of Hamburg to create “next-generation visualizations for digital humanities.” The project focuses on a non-representational, modeling approach to design of a graphical environment for interpretative work. The talk will outline the epistemological frameworks of the project, including the distinction between modeling and representation, conceptual activities vs. discovery tools, and hermeneutic vs. mechanistic algorithmic principles. In addition, the talk will touch on the process of research development at the intersection of the interests and expertise of a diverse team of partners. As a presentation of work-in-progress, the talk is meant as an invitation for input in the design, development, and intellectual frameworks of the project.
