The event is organised to reflect on different and innovative social science digital research approaches and programmes that have developed over the past several years. From digital sociology to web science, how is the question and challenge of digitisation being conceived and researched? What are the key differences between approaches and their consequences for how we do social science? Join the discussion and debate lead by short reflections on these questions by a panel of scholars from Goldsmiths, Warwick, Southampton and Canberra.
