Winter School: Post-truth Empiricism: On the new epistemologies and research affordances of social media

The Digital Methods Initiative (DMI), Amsterdam (at the University of Amsterdam), is holding its annual Winter School on 'Post-truth empiricism: On the new epistemologies and research affordances of social media.' The format is that of a social media and web data sprint, with tutorials as well as hands-on work for telling stories with data. There is a program of keynote speakers, and it is intended for advanced Master's students, PhD candidates and motivated scholars who would like to work on and complete a digital methods project in an intensive workshop setting.

At the Winter School, there are the usual social media tool tutorials (and the occasional tool requiem), but also invitations for thinking through and proposing how to work on web epistemology after the fake news debacle. New tutorials include digital ethnography, data journalism and small data work, plus a new variation on the walk-through method.
