L’Istituto Svizzero inizia un nuovo ciclo di conferenze che riunisce studiosi di fama internazionale e giovani ricercatori delle scienze umane e sociali, così come da discipline scientifiche e tecnologiche, per approfondire la discussione e la riflessione sull’indagine visuale, le sue fonti disciplinari e i suoi sviluppi futuri nel contesto dei Big Data, delle visualizzazioni digitali e dell’analisi secondaria.

Perception, Understanding, and Argumentation in a Digital World
This conference cycle brings together internationally renowned scholars and upcoming researchers from the humanities and social sciences, as well as from science and technology studies. The key purpose of the conference cycle is to deepen the discussion and reflection on visual inquiry, its disciplinary sources and future developments, in the context of big data, digital visualizations, and secondary analysis (e.g., digital humanities). The envisaged interdisciplinary dialogue will be conducted in a series of workshops, workshops that are also designed to open up a more general discussion on perception, understanding, and argumentation in a (partly) digital world.
The workshops are public and multilingual (French, Italian, German, English). An evening lecture will be part of each of them.
