Digital Methods: From Challenges to Bildung
2017 (English)In: The Datafied Society: Studying Culture through Data / [ed] Mirko Tobias Schäfer & Karin van Es, Amsterdam: Amsterdam University Press, 2017Chapter in book (Other academic)
The chapter starts with a short summary of what we consider to be five central challenges concerning the recent move towards Digital Methods. We then interrogate David Berry’s concept of ‘digital Bildung’ as a means of facing these challenges. Our goal in this discussion is, maybe paradoxically, to move the spotlight from ‘the digital’ and programming, to the plethora of concepts and knowledges mobilized in digital tools. To this end, we discuss three examples that allow us to both concretise and complicate the debate about what kind of skill set is needed by digital scholars.
