June 2020

At the June meeting, we discussed Kitchin’s (2014) Big Data, new epistemologies, and paradigm shifts, due to its prominence in contributing to how Big Data is conceptualised by many today. Kitchin lists seven characteristics of Big Data and suggests that it allows for theory to be born from data, rather than theory being tested against data. The discussion in the meeting was centered around how we have moved on from this understanding of Big Data six years later (or if we haven’t, by and large).

Abridged notes for these chapters can be found here.
