Who is doing computational social science, and why? Among social scientists and humanities scholars, there is a clear appetite to engage with data at an accelerated rate. And while a recent study suggests that a majority of researchers who hadn’t yet used Big Data would like to, the challenge of the new remains. This session follows from a white paper on ‘Who is doing computational social science?’ released last year by SAGE Publishing, and will look at the back story of Big Data social science and the fast-paced evolution of entice opportunities and methods to confront those challenges. Please come by the SAGE booth after the panel concludes for some free hors d'oeuvres.
This event is being hosted by SAGE Publishing.
