CDI Research Support Scheme 2021/22: Rolling call

The Centre for Digital Inquiry research support scheme aims to support digital research at Warwick. We are interested in projects and/or events that either engage with digital tools and methods in critical, reflexive, and creative ways, or that substantively engage with the digital and closely related topics (data, AI, platforms, networks, etc.). Note: The CDI is a research centre and is only able to support projects that contribute toward research.

This year, the scheme will remain open until the funds are spent. All supported projects must be concluded by July 10, 2022. Up to £2,000 is available per project. The application form is available here.

Introductory Social Media Analysis with R - A Twitter and Reddit comparison

Our public discourse is often mediated by social media. Both the personalities and the structure of the platforms shape our debates, to construct meaning and foster our shared selves. Finding means to collect, collate, and form narratives around these platforms is useful for scholars in the Arts and humanities.

In this workshop, we (a) look at tools for interacting with APIs (Application Programming Interfaces) to collect data, (b) explore some basic analysis and (c) consider critically what our tool and methods allow us to learn about these platforms and the debates within.

Introduction to QGIS: Creating a map for print and web

Do you want to learn a new skill? Have you ever thought of creating a basic map for a presentation or publication? What about creating an interactive web map for your own website or just to experiment how that will look in an internet browser? If you answered yes to any of these questions, this workshop is for you!

In this introductory course, we will give you an overview on how to use different cartographic techniques to effectively present outcomes of digital data exploration using QGIS software. We assume no prior knowledge of GIS (Geographic Information System) and will explain how to get data into the GIS as well as how to produce maps using data.
