People-Centered Digital Research
Tuesday, March 22nd 6:30-8:30pm
In this participatory and discussion oriented workshop, we will be exploring what (big) data is, how it matters to researchers across disciplines studying human experience, and what some of the ethical issues relating to collection, analysis, and use are. In particular, we will discuss dilemmas surrounding informed consent, privacy, and questions of understanding race, gender, and other identities online. To initiate thinking about the presentation and use of digital research, we will focus on the proliferation of data visualizations and the critical questions that they raise. Participants who are wrestling with conceptual questions regarding the conduct of social data science are invited to share their experiences and learn together.
