    DHDJ SymposiumDigital humanists and data journalists face common challenges, opportunities, and goals, such as how to communicate effectively with the public. They use similar software tools, programming languages, and techniques, and they can learn from each other. Attend the Digital Humanities + Data Journalism Symposium September 14-16 for a series of lectures and tutorials on shared data types, visualization methods, and data communication—including text visualization, network diagrams, maps, databases, and data wrangling. In addition to the scheduled content, opportunities for casual conversation and networking will be available.

    Open to the public, the symposium will be held all day Thursday and Friday, September 14-15, from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m., and a half day on Saturday, September 16, from 9 a.m. to noon at the Newman Alumni Center, 6200 San Amaro Drive, on the Coral Gables campus. The symposium is sponsored by the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, Google News Lab, Microsoft, the University of Miami School of Communication, UM Libraries, the College of Arts and Sciences, and the Center for Computational Science.
