Inhalt: Digital Cultures are all around us. We use them every day. Swiping, liking and following content in a continous loop, especially social media and image boards are part of our daily cultural reality. The COVID-19 pandemic only accelerated the "going online" of social sciences and humanities research methods. Therefore, this seminar follows a seemingly simple question: How to analyze these Digital Cultures? In this seminar students will practically experiment with qualitative approaches to analyze a digital phenomenom of their own choice. What methods can we use to research online communities? How to adapt our established qualitative methods to analyze Facebook or Telegram? How could qualitative analysis help us to uncover persuasive platforms like Instagram or TikTok? How to properly follow a practice, meme, hashtag, current online debate, or fascinating subreddit? In part 1 of the seminar the student will decide on a topic, and learn more about methodology . In part 2 we will try out different methods in class. You will conduct and analyze your material in the last part of the seminar.
