Online Research Methods
11 March 2021, 3.00pm - 5.00pm
Research Training

This session will offer an introduction to researching online in the Humanities and Social Sciences, with a focus on qualitative approaches to the study of contemporary digital materials. The session will provide an overview of some of the primary areas and approaches to online research, such as digital culture studies and digital ethnography, as well as introducing tools for collecting or locating online materials such as social media content or rapidly changing websites. We will look at how online materials can be used alongside ‘offline’ research, and also discuss specific issues involved in working with online data, such as ethical concerns.

Session Leader: Naomi Wells (Institute of Modern Languages Research, SAS)
