Urban Democracy Lab


Humanizing Data: Data, Humanities, and the City

Co-sponsored by the Urban Democracy Lab, NYU Gallatin, NYU Shanghai Center for Data Science and Analytics, and Asian/Pacific/American Institute at NYU

This day-long symposium examines how we can use data and digital strategies to enhance and disrupt the kinds of research questions, methods, and narratives that define the humanities. It also complicates the role of the urban university in a global “city-state” such as New York, where the boundaries between university and city are quite blurred. This symposium is an opportunity to rethink our alliances, forge stronger and more equal relationships between university-affiliated researchers and community-based organizations, and amplify opportunities to share both resources and authorship with one another.

Free and open to the public. For more information on panels and presenters, please go to the UDL site. To RSVP for individual panels and workshops, please complete this form.
