Efforts have been made to draft “A Field Guide to Fake News” (fakenews.publicdatalab.org/). The aim of the field guide is to present a series of recipes for using digital methods in journalism. Digital methods are based on internet research, allowing quantitative/qualitative analysis of social media and other online platforms. Following these efforts, The TANT-Lab at Aalborg University Copenhagen (AAU CPH) and Digital Social Science Lab will host a data sprint, aiming to road test the recipes by inviting journalists, digital media researchers and others to participate.
As a participant in the sprint, you will gain insight into the inner workings of digital methods, fake news as an online phenomenon and interdisciplinary work practices.
Registration is mandatory and you can read more about the event and how to sign up here:
This data sprint is facilitated by Techno-Anthropology master program students Ronja Lofstad, Asbjørn Fleinert Mathiasen, Anders Grundtvig, Daniel Bach and Asger Gehrt Olesen on behalf of The TANT-Lab in collaboration with Digital Social Science Lab.
