Call for Papers: Digital Methods as Mainstream Methodology Showcase Event

Friday 7th December 2012, British Library, London

We would like to invite PhD students and early career researchers in the field of digital social research to present their work at the latest event by the Digital Methods as Mainstream Methodology network. The seminar series is funded by the National Centre for Research Methods Networks for Methodological Innovation. The event will present case studies from researchers at a variety of career stages and from a variety of disciplines, alongside keynote speakers and a talk from Head of Social Sciences at the British Library on their web archiving project.

This is an exciting opportunity to present your research at a showcase event designed to highlight best practice and critical issues in digital social research.

In order to give as many researchers as possible the chance to share their work, and to keep the event lively and focused, accepted presentations will take the form of short ‘PechaKucha’style talks. The format will consist of 10 slides showing an image (or a small piece of text), each displayed for 20 seconds, or 3 minutes and 20 seconds in total. Slides advance automatically to complement your talk. Further details and examples are available from (please note that due to time constraints, we have halved the time allowed and number of slides).

Eligibility Criteria:

*   PhD students or early career researchers (within 3 years of PhD completion) and based in the UK.
*   Research utilises ‘digital methods’, broadly defined as ‘the use of online and digital technologies to collect and analyse research data’ in any social science discipline.

Please send us your abstract of no more than 200 words to by 1st October 2012. Your abstract should highlight what you consider to be innovative about your research.
