About the Project
Visualizing the Virus is an interdisciplinary digital project through which one can visualize and understand the Coronavirus pandemic from a variety of perspectives. It aims to center the inequalities the pandemic makes visible.
We are not only interested in the ways in which scientists, artists and people in their everyday lives have made the virus visible; but also the longstanding inequalities that the viruses make visible—be it of access to resources and healthcare, vaccine imperialism, xenophobia, gender inequalities, and so on.
This website is conceived as a reflective archive ‘in becoming’ as we continue to add new material to it over the next two years.
The project was founded and is led by Dr. Sria Chatterjee. It was made possible by a grant from DARIAH-EU and support from the Institute of Experimental Design and Media Cultures, FHNW. The Center for Digital Humanities is a project partner, and CDH Associate Director Natalia Ermolaev is a member of the advisory board.
The Visualizing the Virus project is offering two paid research fellowship opportunities for Princeton students (details available here)! Each Research Fellow will work for the project for six months, part-time (3-5 hours a week) and will receive $1500 for their work.
