Mapping Issues with the Web: An Introduction to Digital Methods
On the occasion of Bruno Latour’s visit to Columbia University, this presentation will show participants how to operationalize his seminal Actor-Network-Theory using digital data and methods in the service of social and cultural research. This event will be live streamed.
Participants will be introduced to some of the digital methods and tools developed at the University of Amsterdam and Sciences Po over the past decade and how they have been used to generate insights around a wide variety of topics, from human rights to extremism, global health to climate change.
Liliana Bounegru and Jonathan Gray collaborated to produce the popular, prescient ‘Data Journalism Handbook‘, published in 2012. They are currently working on a new project exploring how journalists can use new digital tools and methods developed by social science researchers to transform coverage of complex issues and events – using the Paris 2015 climate negotiations as a case study.
