Data Storytelling Workbook

WHAT IS THE DATA STORYTELLING WORKBOOK?

The first of its kind, the Data Storytelling Workbook brings together inspiring work from across social sciences, data journalism, graphic design, computer science and geography, taking readers on a journey through the ins and outs of storytelling with data. We would love for you to come along on the adventure!

The workbook is curated by Dr. Anna Feigenbaum with the Bournemouth University Civic Media Hub, research and design assistant Aria Alamahodaei, and Minute Works graphic design studio.. It will be published and distributed by Routledge in 2020. To contact the project coordinator, email afeigenbaum [at] bournemouth [.] ac [.] uk
