Mapping & Clouding: Employing Digital Methods The workshop in Digital Methods concentrates on using and interpreting the Lippmannian Device, the tool developed by Rogers and colleagues in the context of the Mapping Controversies project, led by Bruno Latour (www.mappingcontroversies.net).
It is named after Walter Lippmann (1889-1974), the American writer and columnist, and author of Public Opinion (1922) and The Phantom Public (1927). In particular the software takes up Lippmann’s call for equipment to ‘test’ in a coarse means an actor’s partisanship.
At the workshop, Rogers will present (at least) four ways to use the Lippmannian Device, and also facilitate use by the workshop participants. Rogers also will introduce additional devices and tools (some 30), developed to date by the Digital Methods Initiative and the Govcom.org Foundation (tools.digitalmethods.net). The workshop also facilitates projects by participants. Participants should consider bringing along a research question that concerns using online data for social research.
