Doing Social and Political Research in a Digital Age: An Introduction to Digital Methods

  1. 1. Doing Social and Political Research in a Digital Age: National Center of Competence in Research: Challenges to Democracy in the 21st Century 5 November 2015, Zürich, Switzerland Liliana Bounegru | lilianabounegru.org | @bb_liliana An Introduction to Digital Methods

  4. 4. Situated within current debates about the digitisation of social research
  5. 5. - Duncan J. Watts, “A twenty-first century science,” Nature, 2007 “Data about Internet-based communication and interactivity could revolutionise our understanding of collective human behaviour.” !
  6. 6. – David Lazer et al., “Computational Social Science”, Science, 2009 “…[T]racing the spread of arguments, rumours, or positions about political and other issues in the blogosphere, as well as the behaviour of individuals ‘surfing’ the Internet, where the concerns of an electorate become visible in the searches they conduct.”
  7. 7. –Savage M. & Burrows, R. (2007). “The Coming Crisis of Empirical Sociology”, Sociology “…In an age of knowing capitalism, sociologists have not adequately thought about the challenges posed to their expertise by the proliferation of ‘social’ transactional data which are now routinely collected, processed and analysed by a wide variety of private and public institutions”
  8. 8. –Richard Rogers (2013). Digital Methods. MIT Press “Google envy”: “the capacity of search engine companies and social networking sites to collect data that approximates both the type and the scale social scientists would like to generate themselves”
  9. 9. Digital methods take up the challenge of rethinking the methodological repertoires of social and political research by creatively engaging with digital environments and their devices
  10. 10. – Richard Rogers, “Political Research in the Digital Age”, International Public Policy Review, 2014 “[Digital methods] refers to repurposing online devices and platforms (such as Google searches, Facebook and Wikipedia) for social and political research that would often have been otherwise improbable.”
  11. 11. – Richard Rogers, “Political Research in the Digital Age”, International Public Policy Review, 2014 “[Digital methods] encourage a sociological outlook or imagination about research opportunities that exist in online culture by following the medium rather than asking it to do one’s disciplinary bidding.”
  12. 12. –Noortje Marres, “Re-distributing methods - digital social research as participatory research,” 2011 “This approach accords to digital devices, search engines chief among them, the capacity to generate potentially new methods of social research.”
  13. 13. – Richard Rogers, “Political Research in the Digital Age”, International Public Policy Review, 2014
  14. 14. Digital methods are … ! (1) an approach to studying social and political issues online (“issue mapping”, “controversy mapping”, “digital STS”) ! (2) an approach to the study of digital platforms to makes visible the method and information politics of digital devices ! (3) a contribution to the methodological repertoire of social and Internet studies and way to reflect on the politics of methods of these disciplines
