PhDnet@CAIS brings together doctoral students who are working on the social consequences of digitalization. It offers them a platform to establish contacts across subject boundaries, and to acquire practical skills and to discuss their own experiences.
The research projects cover a range of themes, including: artificial intelligence and ethics, political communication on social media, datafication and journalism, and digital media in education.
The network is aimed primarily at doctoral students in North Rhine-Westphalia, and also supports them beyond the completion of their doctorate. Participants from other federal states are also welcome.
PhDnet@CAIS is a forum for doctoral students from the humanities and technical sciences to discuss the social consequences of digitalization. Members of the network have the opportunity to present their research projects here.
Power, Control, and Cyber Governance: Discourse from the East and the West
This international workshop for PhD students explores the relationship between power, control and Cyber Governance, and its effects on society, from a global and comparative perspective. It is jointly hosted by the International Communication Section, International Association of Media and Communication Research (INC, IAMCR), the School of Communication, Hong Kong Baptist University (HKBU), and CAIS.
Digitalisation Research Seminar
DigiSem is a bi-annual workshop for doctoral and postdoctoral researchers, organised by bidt, CAIS, and Weizenbaum-Institute. The workshop will include a keynote by a renowned expert, multiple sessions on specific aspects of the workshop’s overarching theme chaired by experienced researchers from the organising institutes, and other formats, such as a poster session in which researchers present results and discuss current hot topics in a collaborative and experimental fashion.
Begriffe und Konzepte der Digitalisierung
Die Workshop-Reihe des PhDnet zu Begriffen und Konzepten der Digitalisierung richtet sich an Promovierende, die ein grundlegendes Verständnis aktueller Theorien und Diskurse in der Digitalisierungsforschung erwerben möchten.
The current workshop series on digital methods offers participants the chance to try out tools for collecting and analyzing research data, and to discuss issues to do with research ethics and data protection.
In der Reihe Agile Methoden können innovative Arbeitsweisen und Präsentationsformen erlernt und ausprobiert werden, die sich beispielsweise in den Bereichen Projektmanagement oder Wissenschaftskommunikation anwenden lassen.
Research Data Management - Legal and Practical Aspects
While transparency about research has always been an integral part of good scientific practice, nowadays more and more research funders and academic publishers also require researchers to archive and share their research data in order to allow other researchers to comprehend or replicate the findings and to (re-)use the data for other purposes. Last but not least, researchers themselves increasingly realize the benefits of sharing research data with others in order to gain academic reputation for the challenging task of producing (re-)usable high-quality research data.
Digitalisation Research and Network Meeting
The interdisciplinary event provides a forum for early career researchers with a focus on digitalisation-related topics. DigiMeet offers opportunities for networking, discussing results and ideas, and gathering inspiration for new and ideally collaborative research projects.
Rückblick: Summer School 2021
Quo vadis Digitalisierungsforschung?
Die Summer School erarbeitete das Themengebiet Digitalisierungsforschung mit den Teilnehmer*innen überblicksartig und interdisziplinär. Dabei geht es auch um die Frage nach dem jeweils eigenen Selbstverständnis als Digitalisierungsforscher*in.
