Excited to announce the open access publication of our article with Global Networks. It’s a discussion of how we combine ‘big data’ research with ethnographic methods and feminist ethics with the aim of better understanding […]
I’m glad to have the rather unique opportunity of giving a guest lecture this week to anthropology students who want to know more about the possibilities of data visualization methods within an ethnographic research design. The lecture is part of a methods module in the Anthropology Bachelor at the University of Amsterdam that directly addresses questions about how compatible “qualitative” and “quantitative” methods are with one another.
Last week I completed the Summer School of the Digital Methods Initiative at the University of Amsterdam as part of the digital methods training of the Digital Crossings project I’m working on. It was an immersive experience in the world of “big data” researchers, tools, methods, and ontologies. We learned through a mix of keynote lectures, tutorial workshops, and working in groups on our own research projects. I had the opportunity of pitching three small sub-projects that I proceeded to work on for the first week together with my team from the Digital Crossings research project and an international group of participants of the summer school.
On March 8th, originally known as International Working Women’s Day (and still known as International Women’s Day) I started my new job as Postodc researcher at Utrecht University. Pretty fitting! For the coming 4 years I’ll be working on the ERC funded project, ‘Digital Crossings in Europe: Gender, Diaspora and Belonging,’ (aka the Connecting Europe project).
