Colder Than Mars: Humanizing Data On The Prairies
March 3, 2016 @ 8:00 am - March 18, 2016 @ 5:00 pm
During the month of March, 2016, a series of events will be hosted by The University of Regina Humanities Research Institute and by Creative Technologies @ MAP. The events draw attention to human condition and situational experiences within the prairies through the exploration of locational datasets, the creation and impact of visualizing information in new ways and the contribution of information into the public domain.
The events include the Humanizing Data on the Prairies Conference and hackathon (March 4-5), hosting plenary presentations by data and visualization experts from Leeds Beckett University, Carleton University, and the University of Regina. This is preceded by the Barbara Powell Memorial Lecture (March 3), delivered by Dr. Erik Steiner, Creative Director and co-founder of the Spatial History Project at the Center for Spatial and Textual Analysis (CESTA) at Stanford University and a former President of the North American Cartographic Information Society (NACIS). On International Women’s Day (March 8) the first ART+FEMINISM Wikipedia Edit-a-Thon will take place at the University of Regina where students, community and the public are invited to take part in building more prairie-focused content into the information platform.
