<nettime-ann> Announcing > DATA STUDIES - New low-residency MSc programm


.
Dear Colleagues, 

With great enthusiasm we share our most currently developed excellence,
low-residency, masterâs program answering the continual evolving needs
of the field.

------------------

DATA STUDIES Masters of Science focuses on the critical juncture
between the birth of new research paradigms, methods & tools, and the
increasingly complex politics of social media as contested global
platforms and data repositories.

==> POST-GRADUATE - (Masters of Science, 120 ECTS, 5-semester)
(Academic Expert, 60 ECTS, 3-semester (Certified Program, 30 ECTS, 2-3
semester)

==> MODULARIZED â Created to accommodate the needs of working
professionals, the modularized and low-residency program "Data Studies"
conveys the core skills of contemporary digital science over seven
intensive 4-6 day modules held in Austria.   

==> START â 18. November 2014

--------------------

==> BRAIN TRUST - Data Studies brings together the best experts in the
field - excerpt from the international faculty: David M. BERRY (London),
Axel BRUNS (Sidney), Carolin GERLITZ (Amsterdam), Lev MANOVICH (New
York), Warren SACK (Santa Cruz), Regine BUSCHAUER (Basel), Theo RÃhle
(Braunschweig), Annika RICHTERICH (Maastricht), Shintaro MIYAZAKI
(BASEL), RamÃn REICHERT (Vienna) and Oliver GRAU (DanubeU).

==> WHY - There has been a data rush in the past decade â one brought
about by companies producing big amounts of data, another by the
ubiquity of online communication, social media in particular (YouTube,
Google Earth, Tumblr, Twitter, Pinterest, FeedBurner and Facebook), and
by the adoption within the social sciences and digital humanities of
analytical software-based tools. Big Data is the big challenge of our
time in computing and humanities. It generates value from very large
data sets, which cannot be analyzed with traditional computing
techniques.

==> CONTENT - The new post-graduate course DATA STUDIES starting this
November responds to the increasing demand for competencies bridged
between cultural and computer sciences. It conveys to students
comprehensive theoretical and practical knowledge about the systematic
application of computer-assisted and data-based processes with digital
resources. The transdisciplinary aligned spectrum of the curriculum
brings various methodological approaches together and offers an overview
of knowledge fields in DIGITAL HUMANITIES, DIGITAL LITERACY, DIGITAL
METHODS, COMPUTER PHILOLOGY, VISUAL CULTURE, DATA CRITICISM, HISTORICAL
COMPUTER SCIENCE, COMPUTER LINGUISTICS, CULTURE & MEDIA HISTORY,
POPULARIZATION & VISUALIZATION OF COMPLEX DATA STRUCTURES, DATA PRIVACY
LAWS, INFORMATION MANAGEMENT and THEORIES OF DIGITAL MEDIA IN THE
HUMANITIES & CULTURAL SCIENCES. In the fields of intermediation,
collections and marketing of data, the LEGAL and ECONOMIC aspects are
specifically tailored to play important roles. 

---------------------

==> DANUBE UNIVERSITY - located 70km from Vienna in the UNESCO world
heritage Wachau region, Danube University is the only public university
in Europe specializing in advanced continuing education by developing
low-residency degree programs for working professionals and life-long
learners.  The Universityâs Center for Image Science is housed in the
GÃttweig Monastery, a 14th century building remodeled to fit the needs
of modern media arts research in singular surroundings and in the newly
designed Campus Krems.
