Datasprints as a method for Controversy Mapping

Research output: ResearchPoster

Abstract

A datasprint is an intensive 3-5 day workshop that brings together humanistic researchers, data experts, and stakeholders from a selected
field.

Together, the participants visualize and analyse a collection of data sets, which have been prepared before the datasprint.

In the beginning of a datasprint, stakeholders present their understandings and views of the field in question. Following this, the workshop participants explore how the prepared data may shed new light on the field.

The final products of a datasprint are prototypes of analyses or digital products that forms the basis for future collaboration between the partners.

Since 2015, DIGHUMLAB has sponsored a special interest group in controversy mapping. Datasprints have proved to be a very productive format for controversy making and for creating dialogue and joint projects between humanistic researchers.
