9789462981362: The Datafied Society: Studying Culture Through Data

The ability to gather data that can be crunched by machines is valuable for studying society. The new methods needed to work it require new skills and new ways of thinking about best research practices. This book reflects on the role and usefulness of big data, challenging overly optimistic expectations about what it can reveal, introducing practices and methods for its analysis and visualization, and raising important political and ethical questions regarding its collection, handling, and presentation.

Review:

"We all know - or should know by now - how extensively corporationssurveil our actions and analyze the data we leave behind. But we mustn't let our horror at the misuse of data dissuade us from considering how big data can aid us in our quest as scholars and changemakers tounderstand society, and to establish best and ethical practices in those pursuits. This is the first comprehensive look at the possibilitiesfor a humanist approach to big data. " Douglas Rushkoff, author of Throwing Rocks at the Google Bus and Program or Be Programmed

"The Datafied Society. Studying Culture through Data providesan abundance of methodological tools and reflection. Through combininginteresting empirical case studies with sound theoretical reasoning,this interdisciplinary anthology with its excellent and diversecontributions is a milestone in the study of culture through data." Judith Simon, Co-editor Big Data and Society
