What is it about?
The authors propose a framework for analysing and producing argument in data visualisation. This framework is applied in the chapter for investigating two second-year journalism students’ semiotic and rhetorical strategies in making arguments via data visualisation posters. The broader implications in Higher Education for teaching students to become critical citizens via infographic poster production and analysis are explored.
