Unpacking Digital Methods – Janna Joceli Omena
The data-intensive culture associated with the mechanisms, affordances and limitations of web platforms and research software has impacted the way we think and study society. In this scenario, digital media researchers face key questions such as: where and how to start with? How to work with digital records or read networks? How to design and implement research with digital methods? To address these challenges, this talk introduces “another culture of” making research questions, designing research processes and analysing the subject of study. It is divided into three parts: i) understanding and ii) doing digital methods, closing with the many challenges of these methods.
