Today we’re visiting the nearby Data & Society Research Institute so you can experience a multi-discipilnary, outside-the-academy environment for media- and technology-related research; explore alternative means of doing and disseminating research; and perhaps consider how you might someday fit into such an enterprise. We’ll meet at 36 W 20th Street, 11th floor, at 4pm. Please arrive early; the elevator’s S…L…O…W.
- Take some more time to browse through the Data & Society website. Check out the People section: what are their disciplinary backgrounds and research interests? Use the little spyglass icon in the upper-right corner to search for “methods,” and see the variety of techniques they employ. Browse through their Databites videos and podcasts.
- Search The New York Times and other news sites for “Data & Society” to see how the Institute’s work has been used in the popular press in recent months.

- Henry Farrell, “How Facebook Stymies Social Science,” The Chronicle of Higher Education (December 19, 2017).
- We looked before at The New School’s Human Subjects Research guidelines, but let’s look again to see if are any specific rules for Internet research: look under “HRPP Policies and Procedures” à “Internet Research with Human Subjects”
