ECREA Visual Cultures Section Pre-Conference

October 2, 2020

Braga, Portugal

Deadline: May 17, 2020

Interest in visual forms of communication is rising, but researchers seldom get insight on how to go about one's research. During the pre-conference 'Visual Work in Progress' we will explicitly focus on ways of working with visual materials, thinking together about the pros and cons of various methodological alternatives.

The pre-conference will focus on our “visual work in progress”, mainly the conceptualization of and methodological approach to visual data in ongoing research projects. **We encourage participants to share some part of their research visual material, so that we can discuss together our 'visual work in progress'.

The workshop will be organised as ‘data sprint’. Data Sprints are inspired by hackathons organised by the open source community, and are workshops in which participants from diverse backgrounds meet physically and collaborate intensively on a pre-determined subject and dataset. The pre-conference will take place on October 2nd, and end right in time for the opening ceremony of the ECREA conference.
