Palladio, developed by Stanford’s Humanities + Design Lab, is a web-based visualization tool for complex humanities data. A super easy-to-use tool, it can be particularly good for beginners to social network analysis. This workshop will contextualize the exploration of Palladio within an intellectual inquiry–what drove the inquiry and what emerged from the data as a result of deep engagement of the visualization. Specifically, the workshop will cover:
- Introduction to Palladio
- Example: using the Chinese Head Tax data to visualize historical migration patterns
- The caveats behind Palladio's ease of use
*It's not necessary to have knowledge about social network analysis.
