Research Methods for Digital Media Studies - Stream A (Seminar)

Dozent/in: Lisa Conrad, Robert Rapoport

Termin:
wöchentlich | Mittwoch | 09:45 - 13:15 | 05.12.2022 - 01.02.2023 | HMS | HMS

Inhalt: Building on Leuphana Semester’s foregoing general introduction into research methods, this course offers further insights into those methods that are crucial to studying digital media. We divide them into three areas: 1) qualitative empirical methods, 2) cultural theoretical methods, and 3) practice-based methods. In each session of the seminar, we will focus on one method. There will be micro-exercises allowing students to gain an understanding of a method via the experience of performing it. Further, for each method we will read and discuss exemplary research papers.

Research Methods for Digital Media Studies - Stream B (Seminar)

Dozent/in: Lisa Conrad, Robert Rapoport

Termin:
wöchentlich | Mittwoch | 14:00 - 17:30 | 05.12.2022 - 01.02.2023 | HMS | HMS

Operational Images (Seminar)

Dozent/in: Robert Rapoport

Termin:
14-täglich | Donnerstag | 14:00 - 17:30 | 17.10.2022 - 03.02.2023 | HMS | HMS

Inhalt: Machine learning controls an ever-larger part of what we see and hear. The better machine learning gets at predicting our desires, the harder it becomes to 'see' it. This is a course about seeing in new ways, sometimes with and sometimes against machines. We will be looking at how our visual culture, with its endless streaming of images, has taken shape. Tracing the post-war synergies of art and technology, we will track early attempts to combine art and cybernetics up through the net art and into the present. With a core focus on visual culture, we will look at the ethics of image production in parallel.

Procedure and Voice (Seminar)

Dozent/in: Robert Rapoport

Termin:
14-täglich | Dienstag | 09:45 - 13:15 | 17.10.2022 - 03.02.2023 | HMS
Einzeltermin | Fr, 11.11.2022, 14:00 - Fr, 11.11.2022, 18:00 | HMS
Einzeltermin | Sa, 12.11.2022, 10:00 - Sa, 12.11.2022, 16:00 | HMS

Inhalt: In this course, we will build on concepts of Critical Montage. How can working with sequential images make a coherent argument? What are the new possibilities for expressing contemporary subjectivities with sequential images? We will revisit issues of recursion and repetition in our attempt to refine voice and tone. We will also explore how current production relates to time-based archives and databases.

Text and Beyond (Kolloquium)

Dozent/in: Robert Rapoport

Termin:
14-täglich | Donnerstag | 14:00 - 17:30 | 24.10.2022 - 03.02.2023 | HMS | HMS

Inhalt: During the course of the semester, students will present ideas, work-in-progress and nearly-final exposés. If you think of combining the theoretical and creative stream, this is no problem to attend since the four streams are not clear-cut, but rather offer orientation. In the course of the seminar, we will deal with the challenges of scientific writing. First, we will deal with the question of how exactly empirical and creative research can be conducted in the field of digital media, discussing different scientific ( e.g.,(auto-)ethnography, visual studies...) and creative methods (e.g., moving image, audio...). In the later part of the seminar we will deal with the individual steps of project planning; the search for suitable research literature and other sources, as well as helpful strategies for constructing a scientific argument and the preparation of a draft manuscript. Finally we will discuss how to orient our argument in relation to those of others. This is a 10 CP module - if you took your assessment in the other 5CP course, you should take part without taking the assessment.

BA-Colloquium (Kolloquium)

Einzeltermin | Sa, 14.01.2023, 10:00 - Sa, 14.01.2023, 16:00 | C 6.316 | .

Inhalt: In this colloquium, we focus on forming an exciting and answerable research question for a BA thesis. We look at the relationship between formulating a hypothesis and subsequently identifying methods to guide the inquiry. The colloquium is a process of discovery best conducted with peers. The study of Digital Culture increasingly calls for interdisciplinary methods--you have a considerable amount of latitude in terms of your topic and methods. This disciplinary latitude means that choosing a topic narrow enough to answer in a BA thesis is critical. For this reason, much of the feedback given in the initial stages amounts to “be more specific.” Accordingly, you will get the most out of this colloquium if you arrive with a clearly defined topic. You have to know the boundaries (e.g., a time frame, geographic area, demographics).
