“Historio-graphic” introduces knowledge design methods

The book chapter is co-authored by the Knowledge Design Lab’s founders.

In the chapter, “Historio-graphic: Knowledge Design Methods for Interpreting Documents,” Burdick, Lorber-Kasunic, and Sweetapple study a pair of projects to demonstrate how graphic action can serve as textual interpretation. The piece appears in the edited volume Law’s Documents: Authority, Materiality, Aesthetics which was just released by Routledge. The book is a result of the 2018 symposium titled “What is a Document?” sponsored by the School of Law at UTS, hosted by the book’s editors. It is there that the KDL team met Bonnie Mak, an information historian and collaborator on the Lab’s Living Systems project. The book includes a chapter by Mak titled “In Wood and Word, or, A Gloss on Documents and Documentation in the Humanities.”
