Media Suite Seminar Series 2022-2023 

In the academic year 2022-2023, the CLARIAH Media Suite team offers a seminar series that introduces participants to working with the audiovisual collections, tools and methods made available in the Media Suite. Each webinar starts with a theoretical and/or methodological introduction followed by a hands-on session. We start the series with an introductory session focusing on the basic functionalities of the Media Suite, followed by four sessions focusing on different methodologies and functionalities; from searching and bookmarking collections, to cross-media analysis and oral history methods, and qualitative and quantitative analysis using media annotation tools and automated transcripts of media content. 

Lecturers, researchers, PhD- and RMA-students from Dutch universities and research institutes are invited to participate in the sessions. The sessions will be hybrid. Participation is possible on location at the UvA Media Studies Department’s E-Lab (BG1, Room 0.16, Turfdraagsterpad 9, 1012 XT Amsterdam) or via Zoom.
