Two interesting things I read yesterday which are feeding into my short article on digital capitalism and digital social science:
- The radical potential of the Digital Humanities: The most challenging computing problem is the interrogation of power
- Fill in the Gap. A New Alliance for Social and Natural Sciences
I’m interested in how a range of factors which I’m subsuming under the notion of ‘digital capitalism’ are encouraging a new form of social science, as well as how the ensuing digital social science circumscribes social scientific inquiry. To put it incredibly crudely: can we critique capitalism with big data?
