Election Day 2012 and the Numerati

Dr. Michelle Ferrier discusses the November presidential election returns and shows how the use of data, technology and journalism collided in data visualization and storytelling that changed how the electorate engaged with politics. Using online, broadcast, print, social media and interactive media practices, Ferrier will explore how mapping technologies and analytical tools changed the text of political storytelling and how the data geeks triumphed over political pundits to change political discourse.
