CIM welcomes Prof. Carolin Gerlitz as Visiting Fellow

Dr. Gerlitz is Professor of Digital Media and Methods at the University of Siegen and Co-Director of the Graduate School 'Locating Media'. Her visit to CIM is part of her research project "Numbering Life. Measures and Metrics in Digital Media”. This project is funded by the Dutch Council for Scientific Research (NWO) and explores the productive and performative capacities of social media metrics. It involves collaboration with Celia Lury on cultures of quantification and with Michael Dieter on app metrics. A second aim of the fellowship is to continue an ongoing collaboration with Noortje Marres, who is Mercator fellow of the University of Siegen-based collaborative research centre “Media of Cooperation”. Part of this collaboration includes the joint research project “YouTube as a Test Society”.

On Friday March 9th, Dr. Gerlitz will give a public lecture at the University of Warwick, entitled Fabricating “the people”: Automation and quantification in social media. The lecture will take place 10-11AM in B2.04/5 (Science Concourse). Please contact if you would like to attend.

Mixing it: Experiments in Digital Social Research

Research seminar organised by the Centre for Interdisciplinary Methodologies (University of Warwick) as part of Out of Data.

Experiments are valued as sites and instruments of interdisciplinary collaboration between social, computational and creative disciplines today. This provides opportunities for methodological innovation, but also for mutual misunderstanding, as experimentation constitutes a different methodology and implies different sensibilities in different fields.

This workshop will examine the opportunities that digital research provides for experimentation between disciplines and fields. CIM has invited three speakers who have already contributed to this area of research and who come from different disciplinary backgrounds to present an examplar of experimental methodology which for them exemplifies the potential, efficacy or promise of experiments as a digital mode of inquiry. What constitutes a good experiment in digital research?

All are welcome, but places are limited, so please register to attend at Born and Haworth's paper is available upon request from
