Breaking Bad – Presentation at DHN 2018 in Helsinki

Digital humanities research is embedded in ’the digital’ — and so are its methods, from scraping web content to the use of bots as research informants. Within scholarly communities centered on the study of the web or social media there is a rising awareness of the ways in which digital methods might be non-compliant with commercial Terms of Service, a discussion, I would argue, which has not yet really filtered out and been taken serious within the digital humanities. My presentation in Helsinki focuses on my own dealings with Spotify as a case to learn from. A PDF of the slides from the presentation are found here: snickars_helsinki_DHN_2018.
