Storytelling with Data

Spring 2023

Taught By: Maria Massei-Rosato

Section: A

CRN: 11685

Credits: 3

In the wake of data science and data visualization tools, great emphasis has been placed on the visual aspect of storytelling, however, little attention has been paid to the narrative. Drawn on the work of Aristotle, Ernest Hemingway, Edward Tufte, Robert McKee, and Cole Nussbaumer Knaflic, this class will examine the narrative structure and how it can be applied to create compelling stories through a combination of data, visuals, and narrative. Emphasis will be placed on analyzing stories to draw out concepts and applying these concepts to hands-on assignments to understand what works and what doesn’t. The final project will culminate in application of these concepts to the explanatory process of storytelling with data.

Open to: all University Graduate degree students. Some seats have been reserved for MS Data Visualization students.
