Ethics of Data Visualization

I would like to propose a session about the ethics of data visualization. How, given new digital tools, can we honestly represent our research? What are the obligations as a researcher in conducting collaborative research and project development with people whose lives we are representing digitally? How do we construct a methodology(ies) in the field of digital humanities that does not do violence to the subjects of our research? What are key new tensions that emerge between researchers and subjects when using data visualization?
