Columbia University Libraries presents: The Ethics of VisualizationSpeaker: Chris Alen Sula, Assistant Professor, School of Information & Library Science, Pratt InstituteDec. 12, 2012Visualization and infographics are widely discussed today. But despite its popularity and potential impact, "infovis" has rarely been considered in an ethical light. This talk examines the groundwork of infovis ethics and considers several ways in which visualization could give rise to obligations to/for certain groups. The conclusion will situate infovis within a techno-historical context, which raises broader issues of access, representation, and power with respect to visualization.
