Social media as an historical source: methods, challenges, ethics, 17 June 2019

We’re looking forward to running a workshop in collaboration with Cambridge Digital Humanities’ Learning Programme in Cambridge on 17 June, exploring the possibilities and challenges of using vernacular material posted on social media websites, such as Facebook, as an historical source for the period since 1945.

The workshop is open to researchers at all levels, especially Masters and PhD, including those outside of Cambridge. It will include the chance to share and discuss your work-in-progress ideas, a presentation from our project on using social media as a source for social experiences of schooling, and a mock ethics panel.

The event is free of charge to attend and lunch will be provided.

Book here.
