Lecture with Cornelius Schubert on “Coding Data in Software and in STS”

Join us this Friday, November 12th, from 14:00-15:30 hrs UTC+1 (convert time) to hear Cornelius Schubert present his work on “Coding Data in Software and in STS“.

The lecture traces collaborative data and design practices in an interdisciplinary project composed of computer science, social science, and neurosurgery. It especially focusses on the similarities and differences of coding data in qualitative research and computer graphics while designing novel visualisations for high-dimensional data in healthcare. Data plays a central part in all parts of the projects: be it medical data, ethnographic data, interview data, data visualisations or digital data structures. Data is also present in multiple media and formats: on paper, in conversations, in digital information systems, in prototypes, and visualisations. Paraphrasing Annemarie Mol, the lecture will outline the “data multiple” within the project and address the complexities of translating and transforming data from one domain to the other in the process of designing visualisations for clinical data.

All lectures will be on-site at the RUSTlab as well as live on ZOOM, Fridays from 14:00-15:30 hrs UTC+1 (convert time).
