About the research seminar

The aim of the research seminar is to bring together researchers who is doing digital research within the Humanities and Social Sciences, in order to discuss the ethical and legal dimensions of their research projects. Through presentations and discussion of current legal and ethical frameworks and through discussions of how we as researchers do actually go about doing our research in ethically sound ways, we hope to 1) render visible current “best practices” of digital research, and 2) inquire the dilemmas of these practices in order to support digital researchers in navigating the murky waters of digital ethics. Not least, the aim of the seminar is to improve, qualify, and empower ethical decision-making.

The seminar is for all researchers at all stages of their academic careers, including Ph.D.-students, working with big and/or small data. PhD students will be awarded 1 ECTS-point for their participation. Suggested readings will be sent out by e-mail in the beginning of November.

Participation in the seminar is free.
