Digital Scholarship Day of Ideas: ‘Data’

Wednesday, May 14, 2014 - 4:30am to 12:15pm

This one-day event will be webcast from the University of Edinburgh, College of Humanities and Social Science. It will take place on 14th May 2014, from 9.30am to 5.15pm (UK time).

‘Data’, according to boyd and Crawford, ‘is increasingly digital air’. But what do we mean when we speak of ‘data’? From the big promises of big data, to the need to maintain a sense of the value of small data, from algorithmic culture to the reworking of what we mean by interpretation – the data and computational turn in research is posing some profound questions for scholars across the disciplines.

This one-day event will address the question of ‘data’, by bringing together social scientists and humanities scholars to present their work and lead debate. Join us for a day of inspirational talks and excellent networking at the 2014 Digital Scholarship Day of Ideas!
