This semester, Duke is proud to host the Places & Spaces: Mapping Science exhibit, visiting from Indiana University. Places & Spaces is a 10-year effort by Dr. Katy Börner (director of the Cyberinfrastructure for Network Science Center) to bring focus to visualization as a medium of scholarly communication.
The exhibit includes 100 maps from various disciplines and cultures and highlights myriad visualization techniques that have been used to communicate science to a broader public. The maps are divided among three spaces on campus: The Edge (newly opened on the first floor of Bostock Library), Smith Warehouse (on the second floor of Bay 11), and Gross Hall (on the third floor).
To celebrate the opening, Dr. Börner will visit Duke on January 21st and 22nd. She will give a keynote presentation on Wednesday, January 21, at 4pm, in the Edge. A reception will follow.
Additional events next week and throughout the semester will celebrate the exhibit and promote ongoing visualization work at Duke. All events are open to the public!
