Digital Methods Summer School

The Digital Methods Summer School is organised by the Digital Methods Initiative, one of Europe's leading Internet Studies research groups.


Every year, the Digital Methods Initiative organises an intensive summer course in which students learn and develop Internet research techniques for studying societal conditions and cultural change.


During the Digital Methods Initiative (DMI) Summer School, participants actively engage in empirical research projects, employing web-specific software tools, such as scrapers and crawlers. The course concludes with an event at which the research projects are presented.
