    We are delighted to announce that the third Knowledge Exchange Seminar of the New Social Media, New Social Science (NSMNSS) network will now take place in January 2013.


    The ‘Qualitative Research and Social Media’ seminar will bring together specialist speakers to discuss a range of topics, including opportunities and challenges of ‘Deep Data’, understanding behaviors and networks through the lens of netnography, and the changing role of the qualitative researcher online. Please find attached a detailed programme.


    When? Monday, 28th January. Arrival and lunch from 12:30, sessions from 13:00-16:30.

    Where? Etc. Venues, The Hatton, 51-53 Hatton Garden, London, EC1N 8HN

    R.S.V.P. Please contact Claire Ashby at NatCen Learning, to  confirm your attendance by Friday, 14 December. Please include in  your email whether you require any special considerations to attend the event.


    First-come, first-served. We have very limited spaces for this event so places will be allocated on a first-come first-served basis, preference will be given to participants willing to contribute a case study or example from their own experience to one of the sessions, and provide their thoughts in a blog piece or through a short video which can be shared with the wider network.


    We’ll ask contributors to share their experiences at the event by providing a descriptive case study – a short 2-3 minute description of your experience using qualitative methods in social media research. Please identify which of the suggested themes in the programme you think your example would fit under and we will ask you to share this during the relevant session.


    Visit Method Space ( or the

    NSMNSS  Blog ( to read the latest discussions on social media in the social  sciences, and to view past videos capturing case studies for inspiration on preparing your own descriptive case study.


    We look forward to seeing you on January 28th!


    If you can’t join us at the event then we will be holding a webinar looking at the same range of issues on February 5th at 16:00 GMT/UTC, 17:00 CET, please reply with this message: ‘I would like to reserve a seat at the webinar on 5/02/13’ and we will send you details of your login for that session in the New Year.



    Best wishes,

    the NSMNSS network team
