Speakers at the event, which took place at the Interdisciplinary Centre of the Social Sciences (ICOSS) on Monday 8 June 2015, included Helen Kennedy, Professor of Digital Society in the Department of Sociological Studies.

Helen’s presentation was titled ‘Seeing Data’. Helen is currently leading on a research project of the same name – www.seeingdata.org - which aims to understand how people make sense of data visualisations.

The half-day White Rose workshop, co-hosted by the Centre for Visual Studies, was aimed at doctoral students at all stages of research, who share interests in the visual approaches in applied research. Sessions from speakers focused on the visual as topic, method, data and the presentation of data and/or findings.
