New Social Media, New Social Science? One Year On - Digital Debates
Tuesday, 23 April 2013 from 12:30 to 17:00 (BST)
San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
Should social science researchers embrace social media and, if we do, what are the implications for our methods and practice? How do new social media change our perceptions of ethical practice? Do new social media blur the boundaries between qualitative and quantitative research? Our network of methodological innovation brings together academics, researchers and research stakeholders to address these questions. Running over twelve months, our New Social Media, New Social Science network is hosted over several different platforms, including Methodspace, Blogspot, Twitter and YouTube, and has included a launch event, four knowledge exchange seminars, a series of Twitter chats and webinars. Nearly 500 members belong to the network from all around the world. The network is led by NatCen Social Research, SAGE and the Oxford Internet Institute, and funded by the UK's NCRM. Our end of year conference will be held at the Royal Statistical Society on 16th April 2013.
Our One Year On -Digital Debate on April 23rd will pull together learning from the network over the last 12 months and provide plenty of opportunities for delegates unable to attend the earlier conference to contribute to the discussion and help shape the network for the future. As well as live blogging sessions and poster presentations we will be playing keynote sessions from the conference and hosting linked discussions. We hope you can join us. More information on our blog about the programme shortly.
