Strike Data Hack Workshop
Helen Thornham, Chris Birchall, Joanne Armitage
This is a practical data hack workshop where we will scrape, analyse and visualise the data and discourses of the strike. ideally would run as 2 or 3 50 minute slots – or as an additional event.No experience necessary! Just bring a laptop and your extension cable to make sure the battery doesn’t run out! We will teach some basics to scraping and coding, data visualisations and analysis and critically interrogate how the strike actions and pension dispute have been presented. Perhaps we could look at the language used across national media, the statistics used to defend positions, or the longer data histories of the pension dispute. We could look at university policy documents, VC letters across universities, or union publicity for example.
