Fri 5 May 2017, 12:30 – 16:00 BST
Part of the Sadler Seminar series "Remapping World Cinema for the Digital Age"
Seminar organised by Dr Alan O'Leary
This session is methodological in emphasis: it will consider the achievements, potential and also the problems with digital and quantitative approaches to the study of film and audiences, and to new and social media. Allison Cooper (Bowdoin College, USA) will discuss her experience of building archives of film clips; Marco Cucco (Università della Svizzera italiana) will discuss economic and statistical approaches to cinema; Nick Robinson (Politics and International Studies, Leeds) will talk about working with massive datasets of social media comments; Heather Ford (Media, Leeds) will talk about the importance of mixed methods, i.e., using qualitative alongside quantitative approaches; and Huw Jones (University of York) will consider the use for research of cinema admissions figures and audience surveys. The session is convened and chaired by Alan O’Leary (CWCDC/LCS, Leeds).
