Discussion lists as online communities: description tools and analysis methods

The session

We are pleased to welcome Madeleine Akrich, Research director at the CSI. She will discuss methods used to analyze online communities.

Her presentation and the following discussion will be based on Part II of the working paper : “Les listes de discussion comme communautés en ligne : outils de description et méthodes d’analyse“. i3 Working Papers Series, 12-MS-03, May 2012, pp. 45-92.

Participants need to have read the paper before the seminar. The author’s presentation will focus on the “making of” of her research, explaining the type of data collected, the data collection and processing tools used, the analytical strategies, etc. Her presentation will be followed by a collective discussion whose purpose is to explore the links between the processing of data and the analyses, interpretations and arguments resulting from it.
