An interface method: On co-word analysis and intervention in online research.
Speaker: Noortje Marres, Goldsmiths, University of London
Abstract: In this presentation I will consider a particular method, co-word analysis, and its re-mediation in online research. Developed in STS in the 1980s to locate 'pockets of innovation' in scientific literatures (Callon et al, 1983), co-word analysis is today quite widely applied in online research. It figures in various applications for real-time analysis, such as Infomous and the Twitter Streamgraph. I will discuss the implications of this for our understanding and deployment of co-word analysis as an STS method. I propose that the renewed relevance of co-word analysis in online contexts provides opportunities for its critical deployment. I will discuss a particular project that takes up this challenge, an online research tool for 'associational profiling' currently under development.
