We are delighted to welcome students again to our in-person 2023 Social Data School (SDS), organised by Cambridge Digital Humanities at the University of Cambridge. After running the SDS completely online for a couple of years during the covid pandemic, we are glad to receive you for a whole week in Cambridge.

You will learn new methods and tools for data-intensive public interest investigations and academic research, from leading academics and practitioners in the field. You will also have the possibility to use the Library and visit relevant places at the University of Cambridge.

We aim to bring together participants from journalism, academia, publicity, and civil society to explore the methods used to create, visualise and analyse digital data and its dissemination in society.

At the SDS you will learn by doing during in-person sessions and other activities. The school is intensive, but extensive online resources will be available to students to help them follow up on what they learned in the taught sessions during and after the Data School. We encourage anyone working with social data to apply!

Join us for this Q&A with the school’s convenors to learn more about the content of the data school and the application process.

4 May 2023, 2pm UK time.

Register here.

A recording of the main part of the presentation will be available for those who cannot make it live.
