For the second part of the Digital Anthropology series this term’s session will focus on the micro blogging platform Twitter. Questions like: “How can Twitter be used for research in humanities?” and “What options and approaches are there to make use of the Twitter data?” will be answered within the lectures.
With practical examples and case studies students will explore Twitter’s framework, developing research questions on current topics. Additionally, students will gain expertise and skills through independent practical work in the digital field. Practical assistance on safety aspects in online research will also be given in the course of the lectures. Lectures are given by Roman Knipping-Sorokin
