CDMM holds first workshop on Researching Youtube 10 March 2021

Youtube is an important platform for international audiences of all kinds to consume, produce, comment on and network audio-visual content. In this three-hour workshop we want to present an overview of possible research approaches to using data in media and journalism studies. Based on project ideas, we will present, discuss and try out different strategies for archiving Youtube videos, metadata and user comments. The aim of the workshop is to make digital methods for Youtube content accessible and usable in a research and teaching context.
