Since its origins over two centuries ago, data visualization has been transformed by new technologies, social conditions, cultural values, and cognitive advances, literally reshaping how humans see information. This lecture panel brings together three experts from diverse disciplines to examine the impact of data visualization on their work and to explore the interdisciplinary connections that bring new insight to the study and production of visualized data.

Join us for a tour of the exhibit “Beautiful Science, Useful Art: Data Visualization Through History,” followed by short lectures and discussion.
