Akademik Gruplar

Bilgi Medya yüksek lisans programı ve İletişim Bilimleri doktora programı öğrencilerinin başlattığı  Facebook grubu.  Bilgi Academic Xchanges- Media MA- Comm PhD  Artık bir WhatsApp kanalı olarak devam ediyor. 

Yine Whatsapp'ta  lisans öğrencilerine yönelik bir duyuru kanalımız da var. 

Media Anthropology Network - Bu ağın eposta listesi benim için gelmiş geçmiş en faydalı listelerden biriydi...

  Association of Internet Researchers (AoIR): The Association of Internet Researchers is an academic association dedicated to the advancement of the cross-disciplinary field of Internet studies. It is a member-based support network promoting critical and scholarly Internet research independent from traditional disciplines and existing across academic borders. In particular, the AoIR has a comprehensive and well-developed Ethics Guide for Internet Research, now in its 3rd iteration.

  Digital Ethnography Collective: This group was formed through the London School of Economics to explore the intersections of digital culture and ethnographic methods. They have some excellent recorded webinars and a useful collaboratively sourced reading list.

  DigiLabour: Investigates connections between the world of work and digital technologies.

  DISCO Network: The DISCO Network integrates critical humanistic, social science, and artistic approaches to digital studies and foregrounds questions about the cultural implications of technology to envision a new anti-racist and anti-ableist digital future.

  Discord Academic Research Community (D/ARC): The Discord Academic Research Community is an inclusive and supportive network for anyone researching Discord and Discord-related communities, platforms, or cultures.

  Meme Studies Research Network: An international and interdisciplinary research network for scholars who study memes. It aims to bring people together and foster discussion about memes from various academic fields, methodological practices and theoretical standpoints.

  Rutgers Digital Ethnography Working Group: This group’s goal is to develop a deeper understanding of how people live in this digital era and uncover the most innovative methods to study digital communication, information, and media from an ethnographic standpoint

  TechnoSoc: Sociologists of Digital Things: A member-led community of sociologists who study digital phenomena and/or study social life using digital methods in any capacity; get involved via Slack.

  TikTok Cultures Research Network: A portal for scholarly resources, research projects, and events that connects networks of qualitative scholars of various disciplines from around the world studying TikTok.

  Berkman Klien Center for Internet and Society at Harvard University: The Berkman Klein Center's mission is to explore and understand cyberspace; to study its development, dynamics, norms, and standards; and to assess the need or lack thereof for laws and sanctions.

  Critical Algorithm Studies Reading List: A collection of critical literature on algorithms as social concerns. The work included spans sociology, anthropology, science and technology studies, geography, communication, media studies, and legal studies, among others.

  Critical Data Studies Resources: A non-exhaustive list of resources compiled by Angele Christin on the fuzzy and interdisciplinary world of Critical Data Studies (aka Critical Algorithms Studies, Digital Media Studies, Critical Platform Studies, Digital STS, and many related terms).

  Data & Society: An independent, non-profit research organization that produces original research on topics including AI and automation, the impact of technology on labor and health, and online disinformation. Faculty fellows and alt-ac jobs are available.

  Digital Public Interest Collective: A research group whose aim is to “bring together interdisciplinary researchers and scholars who are interested in the ways that digital communication technologies can contribute to the public interest, and the ways in which they undermine it.”

  Doing Fieldwork in a Pandemic: This Google doc was collaboratively sourced at the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, when many traditional methods of qualitative research (e.g., fieldwork) became limited due to social distancing. There are a ton of great resources for how to use digital methods in the midst of the pandemic.

  Projective Techniques and the Use of Visual Images in a Digital Age: This is a resource that I co-authored to outline ways that we can adapt traditional projective research methods using digital technologies.

  SAGE Research Methods: Doing Research Online: HIGHLY RECOMMEND! This is a huge set of videos, case studies, how-to guides, and datasets. It’s entirely online. You can get access through a free 30-trial. The PDFs can be downloaded for reference later.

  SAGE Teaching Resources on Digital Methods:  A collection of PowerPoint slides, syllabi, and other resources to bring digital methods into the classroom.

  Social Media Research: A Guide to Ethics: This is a very easy to read, user friendly guide (featuring a great flowchart!) for approaching issues such as informed consent, anonymity, public versus private data, and legalities.

  Sprout Social’s ‘Social Listening’: A great overview of social listening - what is is, how it works, and why it’s useful.

  Understanding Digital Culture Training: This is an excellent resource for more extended training on internet research. The course was funded through the NEH Advanced Topics in the Digital Humanities Institute hosted by the University of Central Florida and was held June 1-5, 2020 virtually due to COVID-19. Understanding Digital Culture provides resources, training, and a community of collaborators to engage both computational network and data analysis tools and the ethics and best practices of using the web as a site of research. This course is the open-access version of materials from the live institute. The program features a great list of social media tools to explore and walks you through thinking more critically about platforms.

  Microsoft’s Race and Technology Speaker Series: Brings together leading voices at the intersection of race and technology for discussions around data, the internet, justice, genomics, and more.

  UCLA Center for Critical Internet Inquiry: UCLA Center for Critical Internet Inquiry (C2i2) is a critical internet studies community committed to reimagining technology, championing racial justice, and strengthening democracy through research, culture, and public policy.

  UPenn’s Center on Digital Culture and Society: CDCS aims to create collaborative spaces for discussion and debate among academics, citizens, and activists; develop critical approaches to the study of digital culture and technology; help train new generations of digital researchers at the University of Pennsylvania and beyond; build global networks of researchers; advocate for socially just design, production, and use of digital technologies; and explore and foster new visions of digital futures through scholarship and public communication.
