Social Media Research

Seminar Room SG1, Alison Richard Building

Dr Dhiraj Murthy (Goldsmiths, Department of Sociology)
 

 

During Lent Term the Ethics of Big Data group will explore the challenges of applying ethical reasoning in different contexts connected with Big Data research. Our invited speakers will present and discuss case studies from data-driven health and policy research in Africa, administrative data research in the UK, the implementation of eHospital, a new digital platform linking patient records across Cambridge University Hospitals and research using social media data, including a study of the Islamic State organisation.
The first four case study presentations will be open to researchers by application and discussion will be conducted under Chatham House rules. If you are interested in attending please register at http://www.bigdata.cam.ac.uk/research/the-ethics-of-big-data/workshop-registration/Lent2016  and express your interest with a 100 word statement, explaining how your research will benefit from participation in the session.

 

Please note, spaces are limited and participants are encouraged to apply early to secure a place.

The term's programme will finish with a public session on 9 March where an invited panel of experts from a range of different disciplines will be invited to consider a 'mock' research proposal which brings together a variety of the challenges from the real life case studies and present their reasoning to the audience for discussion.

If you have a question about this talk, please contact the Session Convenor: Ella McPherson

Open to all but registration is required and a 100 word statement to participate in any of the first four sessions.
