ABSTRACT: What it means to study society is profoundly changing as we are increasingly surrounded by and incorporated into a pervasive network of digital media (Lazer et al, 2009). In this panel, five scholars will comment for five minutes each on emerging research problems, opportunities, and methods in social science both with and about digital media. Topics will include computational (or e-) social science, new forms and genres of social media, new methods and tactics, legal obstacles to transformative research, and challenges for future graduate education in the social sciences.
