Lecture Series: “Show & Tell – Social Media Data in Research Practice” (online)

"Immer Ärger mit den Bildern" (Show & Tell III)

On 1 July, the working group "Social Media-Daten", initiated by NFDI4Culture in cooperation with KonsortSWD and Text+ as part of the National Research Data Infrastructure Germany (NFDI), hosts the third installment of its lecture series.

Margarete Pratschke (HU Berlin), Sven Stollfuß (Universität Leipzig) and Verena Straub (TU Dresden) will present their research on multimodal data under the working title "Immer Ärger mit den Bildern" (held in German) on 1 July at 14:00.

The lecture series "Show & Tell – Social Media Data in Research Practice" is dedicated to the tools in the field of social media research. In each zoom hour short input talks should aim to highlight best practices and selected research projects. In addition to pragmatic solutions and technical possibilities (software, interfaces, repositories, metadata standards, interoperability ...), points of focus will lie on ethical and legal barriers (personal and individual rights, copyrights) in the creation and evaluation of data sets and corpora, as well as the sustainable, secure and critical handling of them (code and data literacy, FAIR & CARE). Last but not least, we would like to invite you to discuss interdisciplinary research approaches and teaching methods that stress both traditional and subject-specific frameworks and tools. We met on 13 May on the topic of 'Twitter Tools' and on 10 June on 'Social Media-Corpora'.
