Emergent Research, Identification Wars: How Research Can Put Today's Documentation Controversies in Context

Series: 
Emergent Research
Date: 
September 26, 2016
Running Time: 
75:36

Cassius Adair, PhD Candidate in the English Language and Literature program, uses three slices of archival text to explore how and why the relationship between government identification and U.S. citizens has changed over the last century. From early protests against licensing rural drivers, to the mysterious removal of race -- but not gender -- from IDs at mid-century, to flame wars about anonymity and transgender life on the early internet, disagreements about the role of the government in regulating citizen's identities are a re-occurring feature of modern U.S. life. In order to understand how "undocumented" became a powerful political term, or why Voter ID laws spark such intense debate, Adair's research brings together an unlikely archive of minor "identification wars." Together, these scenes help illuminate the longer history of friction between state categorization and minority self-definition.

Emergent Research: Making Sense of Twitter Data with Josh Pacek

Series: 
Emergent Research
Date: 
May 23, 2016
Running Time: 
87:36

Dr. Josh Pasek, Assistant Professor of Communication Studies and Faculty Associate, Center for Political Studies, at the University of Michigan, gives the Emergent Research lecture for May. He says,"Data from online social networks are increasingly applied to pressing social questions. But despite the widespread use of social media data, analyses to date have not been coupled with a clear understanding of what social media data represent. This talk provides a brief look into an ongoing research project to understand how Twitter data, in particular, relate to other forms of social measurement. In it, I discuss theoretical and practical considerations when comparing traditional forms of social analysis with social media data as well as results of some preliminary analyses. These considerations provide a basis for thinking about what social media data can and cannot currently accomplish as a tool for social measurement."
