Digitala metoder i humaniora och samhällsvetenskap
Johan Jarlbrink (Umeå universitet) & Fredrik Norén (Umeå universitet)
Digitala medier ger upphov till nya forskningsfrågor men gör det också möjligt att undersöka gamla frågor med nya metoder. Digitaliseringen av kulturarv och arkivsamlingar innebär att historien kan utforskas på digital väg. Johan Jarlbrink och Fredrik Norén, redaktörerna av den nya antologin Digitala metoder i humaniora och samhällsvetenskap (Studentlitteratur 2021) presenterar denna första introduktion på svenska till en bred uppsättning digitala metoder för studier av historia och samtid. I bokens elva kapitel behandlas digital etnografi, metoder för text-, bild- och nätverksanalys samt studier av dataspel, gränssnitt och digitala flöden.

Introduction to Databases: Managing and Analysing Historical Data
Historians use many different kinds of materials and sources. Working with large amounts of data in digital form can feel overwhelming. Building a database can help you manage sprawling sources, look for social, temporal, and geographic connections between your materials, and visualize the results. This introduction to databases for historians covers how the use of databases can aid your projects, how to get started – and when not to use a database. The workshop is led by Anna Nilsson Hammar (History) and Mathias Johansson (Media history & Lund University Humanities lab).
No previous experience is required.
