Professor Ariadne Vromen (The University of Sydney) will talk about the benefits and challenges she has faced using internet-based methods for data collection in her recent projects.

Event details

This ranges from more established methods using online surveys and discussion groups in two projects: on young people’s use of social media for political engagement, and a new project on digital rights and governance, to newer social science approaches that analyse both small and large datasets generated from scraping public data on social media platforms.

Ariadne has analysed data from LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, and Change.org, in two Australian Research Council (ARC) funded projects and for her recent book on GetUp’s influence on advocacy politics.

The ethics of these emerging approaches to data collection and analysis will also be discussed.
