To date, there is very little critical engagement with the field of data visualization in writing center studies. This project critically engages with data visualization practices for large text-based data sets. We focus on a corpus of around 2 million words and four types of data visualization (Cirrus, Table, Collocates Graph, and WordTree) to make arguments about the larger field of writing center studies. We also address the value of cross-institutional work for writing center studies, particularly related to documents (e.g., sessions notes) that are often under-utilized at individual institutions.
