Criss-crossing digital frontiers in social sciences

online. Digital platform provided by C.I.R.C.E., NetHood and

Organised by the Visual Sociology Lab (Genova) and NetHood (Zurich)

The second of a cycle of seminars which aims to extend the boundaries of the social sciences by integrating other languages and fields of knowledge. In order to attend, please register sending an e-mail to jacopo.anderlini [ at ] before the 3rd of March.

This seminar/workshop will focus on the complex relationship between social sciences, humanities, and digital technologies, focusing on the “making” of social research: which practices, ideas, perspectives on technology emerge from interactions of researchers with the field? How can we “deborder” the distinctions and roles in the research process? Exploring the technological social realm in its historical, cultural, infrastructural dimensions, the seminar aims to explore appropriate methodologies in digital social research as a set of situated tactics to overcome social boundaries and positions in the field.

Participants at the workshop will be actively involved in the conversation and experimentations with digital tools. For this reason, we kindly ask you to register to the event, up to the 3rd March, sending an e-mail to: jacopo.anderlini [ at ]

The event will be recorded.
