The surge of digital technology over the past three decades has reconfigured society – increasing political polarization, generating new types of discrimination in job searches, and expanding government surveillance. This course introduces the budding field of computational sociology. We will examine the ways that new kinds of data are being collected and analyzed and the impact these changes are having in society. You will learn how to collect and analyze novel sources of data, such as text data, social media data, and network data. By the end of the course, you should also be familiar with the sociological consequences of each method.
