Workshop at Universidad de Antioquia, Medellín "Conducting research with digital and qualitative methods on telenovelas and series about the recent history in Colombia, Chile and Brazil: on the development, application and challenges", 06-07-October
On October 6th - 7th, together with our cooperation partners from the Universidad de Antioquia, the Institute of Physics and the Group of Theoretical Physics and Applied Mathematics (GTFyMA), we will organize the workshop "Investigar telenovelas y series sobre la historia reciente en Colombia, Chile y Brasil con métodos digitales y cualitativos: sobre el desarrollo, el uso y los desafíos" ("Conducting research with digital and qualitative methods on telenovelas and series about the recent history in Colombia, Chile and Brazil: on the development, application and challenges"). Here, we will analyze social networks as a space for memory research, as well as the consumption of entertainment media as an overall structure. For this purpose, we will present digital research methods (e-research) to make large amounts of data (Big Data) from the social networks usable as a source corpus for the research project, in addition to interviews, transcriptions of selected telenovelas and the press. The first day (06/10/2022) will be devoted to the development of cognitive agents, the general challenges of research with digital methods, and the application of these methods to specific case studies. On the second day (07/10/2022), different cooperation partners from Colombia and Brazil will present more case studies.
Further information and the complete program will follow soon.
