with Noortje Marrès, "Situational analytics: Why social research must become inventive in a digital age"
Noortje Marres est Associate Professor et Research Director au Centre for Interdisciplinary Methodologies à l'université de Warwick et Visiting Professor au Centre for Science & Technology Studies à l'Université de Leiden.
The seminar aims to develop current reflections about the use of digital data in the analysis of online practices and forms of participation. With the explosion of online communication, a richer and greater amount of information has become available to researchers to document practices in a variety of domains: consumption, political behavior, production of knowledge, sociability, democratic participation, controversy, etc. Evidence of practices and of communication occurring in these domains are now available on various media: forum, discussions lists, blogs, online press, social networks, dedicated exchange platforms, etc. Over the last few years, the use of these data for research purposes has become widespread but there is still little debate on the compilation of corpora, the methods of analysis and the articulation between digital analyses and more classical fieldwork in social science.
