Venue: University of Manchester, University Place 6.207 Practices and techniques of digital visualisation have come to proliferate across a myriad of domains - including medical research and treatment, urban planning, architecture and engineering, the military, and the entertainment industries. The emergence of these new techniques of visualisation in such varied contexts reveal unexpected crossovers, borrowings and shared histories which pose questions about the politics of these still-emerging visualisation techniques. This seminar will scrutinise the relationship between digital visualisation and power, to explore how power dynamics have shaped practices of digital visualisation, and what these practices can tell us about how power functions. Themes to be explored include: Digital Visualisation and knowledge The unseeable, the invisible Digital Visualisation and other senses / a digital sensorium? The ethics of Digital Visualisation The politics of Digital Visualisation Digital Visualisation and Expertise Digital Visualisation, desire and phantasy The relationship of Digital Visualisation to earlier media The methodological challenges of studying Digital Visualisation Digital Visualisation of time and space Visualising Data
