NPC Wired Episode 2: Dr Anna Feigenbaum on Digital Storytelling and Social Change

The second episode of NPC Wired features Dr Anna Feigenbaum, Principal Academic in Digital Storytelling at Bournemouth University. Speaking with Professor Ben O'Loughlin and Dr Elinor Carmi, she discusses her current research (she is presently writing The Data Storytelling Workbook for Routledge, which will be coming out in 2019), draws on practitioners’ experiences and research to investigate how the rise in big and open data can be put to use to tell better data stories for social change. They also talk about the barriers various practitioners face when analysing data, and the fetishisation of data visualisation, among other things.

Her latest book, Tear Gas: From the Battlefields of WW1 to the Streets of Today, published with Verso, is available now. Find out more about Anna's work here, and follow her on Twitter here
