Rhythmanalysis applications, date formats, UNIX time

Online (Zoom), August 14, 2021, 10.00-13.00 (in English)

In this methodology session, we will try to translate rhythmanalysis from a theoretical concept to its possible applications in organizational research, sociology of emotions, and other domains. We encourage the participants to approach the session with an open mind and think about whether or not any of that can be theoretically repurposed in their own research, for richer, more nuanced interpretations. We will also discuss how we are integrating the approach into our own research, as well as some technicalities, such as UNIX time, date conventions, and conversions around date formats, as well as useful data management tips.

INSTRUCTORS

Alexandra Florea Ph.D. Cand.

Interdisciplinary social scientist, policy analyst, and digital citizen. A KU Leuven and DAAD alumna, she is conducting Ph.D. research in the sociology of work at Goethe University Frankfurt, examining up-close the intersections and interactions between digital transformations and gender. Currently grappling with rhythmanalysis as a potent theoretical framework for the twenty-first century, she is engaging with a range of quantitative (experimental), qualitative (autoethnography), and mixed (text-to-data, SNA, netnography) research methods in analyzing the interplay between digital and analog (micro-)social phenomena.
