Invitation to submission to panel: Researching Digital in Asia
March 1, 2018
Liu Jun, associate professor at UCPH, invites submissions for the panel “Researching Digital in Asia” in the ADI 2018, at University of Copenhagen, 18-20 June 2018 (more information here, http://asiandynamics.ku.dk/english/adi-conference-2018/panels/researching-digital-in-asia/).
This panel invites scholars to discuss and (critically) reflect upon research related to digitalization, informationalization, and datafication of Asian societies. It also aims to offer an advanced discussion to the key epistemic, methodological and normative issues they raise, such as:
-What are the implications of the rise of computational social science for the relations between social research and social life in various Asian digitalizing societies?
-How would scholars in Asian studies take advantage of their disciplinary backgrounds to contribute to research on digital in Asia?
-Do we really need new methods in order to study digital societies in Asia?
-What would be the potential benefits of digital transformation in researching Asian digitalizing societies, from boosting the efficiency of research processes to driving methodological innovation?
-How would we face possible digital “disruptions,” in particular challenges of data protection to “go digital” and issues about new digital ethics?
Deadline for submission is 1 March 2018.
