What is Digital Sociology?

Tuesday 16th July 2013
BSA Meeting Room, Suite 2, 2 Station Court
Imperial Wharf, Fulham, London SW6 2PY

This inaugural event for the BSA’s Digital Sociology Group brings together a diverse range
of speakers who, in a variety of ways, work within the nascent field of digital sociology.
Rather than proceed from a substantive account of what digital sociology is or could be,
this event seeks to address the question ‘what is digital sociology?’ through an open and
informal exploration of a broad range of exciting work being undertaken by sociologists
in the UK which could, in the broadest sense of the term, be characterised as ‘digital’. In
casting a spotlight on these projects in such a way the event aims to initiate an ongoing
dialogue about the continuities and discontinuities between these emergent strands of
digital activity, as well as the broader methodological and disciplinary questions which
they pose.
