Starting 6 November, we offer a second round of our PhD course
in Digital Research (7,5 credits) in collaboration with Digsum. The course
provides an introduction to digital research in the humanities and
social sciences. The orientation is broad and covers, for example,
digital research methods, and legal, historical, and other critical
approaches to digital society.
The course consists of three parts:
- A general introduction to the field, and how it emerged at the
intersection of the humanities and social sciences.
- Lectures, practical demonstrations and workshops on digital
methods. Both qualitative and quantitative methods are covered,
with a focus on the combination of different methods. The course
has a thorough section on etichs with internationally leading guest
lecturer Charles Ess.
- Examples of specific applications of the tools and
perspectives, connected to ongoing digital research in the
humanities and social sciences at Umea University.
PhD students from all parts of Umeå University (or other
universities) are welcome to take part.
