Lab Session: Mapping the digital SSH skill set

Digital Media Lab event 20th April 2023, 11.30-12.45 in room 42.1-01, Roskilde University

Guest speaker: Anders Koed Madsen, Associate Professor & Head of Experiments, TANTLab, Aalborg University

An increasing number of scholars and students in the humanities and social sciences (SSH) are interested in what they can do with digital data and digital methods. At the same time, it can be challenging to pinpoint what skills must be honed to engage fruitfully with data from digital media. From coding via database management to visualisation and ethics, the requirements can seem wide-ranging and daunting. In this lab session, we set out to collectively understand and map the hands-on skill set that is key to get started with digital SSH. We have invited the Head of Experiments at TANTLab, Anders Koed Madsen, who has worked extensively with digital methods teaching and research. Anders will tell us about his experiences to get us started mapping the digital SSH skill set, which we can then continue to cultivate together in the Digital Media Lab at RUC.
