Tune in 4/22 for an online talk with +Mundaneum about data literacy and the power of mapping! #ArtTalks #hangoutsonair
Google Art Project originally shared:
 
On Wednesday, 22 April at 4pm CET (10am EST), the +Mundaneum is inviting Dr. Katy Börner (Indiana University) for an online Art Talk about her latest book, “Atlas of Knowledge. Anyone can map” and data literacy. Her presentation of what mapping can bring to the understanding of science and technology data will be followed by a conversation with specialists Dr. Andrea Scharnhorst (KNAW-DANS, The Netherlands) and Dr. Almila Akdag (eHumanities group KNAW, The Netherlands).
 
We live in “ a time when data literacy is becoming almost as important as language literacy. The Atlas of Knowledge intends to empower anyone to map and make sense of science and technology data to improve daily decision making. ” Atlas of Knowledge, Katy Börner, MIT Press, 2015.

The Mundaneum, brainchild of Paul Otlet – the “father of the Internet idea” – and Henri La Fontaine, Nobel Peace Prize 1913, is now an archives center and museum space devoted to their heritage and its translation into today’s digital culture. One of their preoccupations was to collect, classify and share information, including graphics and maps.

Katy Börner (Professor of Information Science) and Andrea Scharnhorst (Head of e-Research, Data Archiving and Networked Services) are both scientific advisors for the Mundaneum exhibition Mapping Knowledge, understanding the world through data (June 12, 2015 – May 29, 2016). Almila Akdag works on technoscience art and information visualization.

This Hangout On Air is hosted by Google Art Project. The live video broadcast will begin soon.
