Summer School in research ethics | Dresden »»» Extended deadline

Research ethics in the digital age. Ethical aspects in social science and humanities in times of digitization and medialization.
September 6th – 12th, 2015 in Dresden, Germany


Digitization and mediatization are core processes of ongoing social change. In the course of mediatization, communication increasingly manifests itself via mass media or telecommunications. Thus, more and more information becomes accessible in the form of data. Digitization converts data into universal digital formats which eases computer processing, leads to the convergence of different media, and thus further fosters mediatisation. Both processes alter social behavior and cultural traditions, thereby generating new objects of study and new research questions for the social sciences and humanities. Further, mediatization and digitization increase the data volume and accessibility of (quantitative) research and proliferate methodological opportunities for scientific analyses.
