Inhoud
The media with which we communicate have in common that they all (in one way or another e.g., language, audiovisual etc.) save, transport or process data. But what is this data, and what is the difference between data, information and algorithms? What happens to knowledge, power and control if data is increasingly produced, processed and ordered with the help of software? How can data be used for the study of culture and society? What ethical issues arise when using ‘big data’ for research purposes?
 
This first course of the Digital Communication specialisation provides a general overview of communication and information studies and explores contemporary developments around the analysis of so-called big data within Humanities scholarship.

LAS and TCS students who follow this course as part of the core curriculum of their major, need to complete a compulsory preparation course/assignment. See for more information: https://tcs.sites.uu.nl/
