Big Data: a necessary disenchantment

In this podcast, our Digital Engagement Fellow Mark Carrigan talks to Nick Couldry (LSE) who argues that we have seen the emergence of a ‘myth of big data’ which claims that we can dispense with interpretation as a form of social inquiry. This podcast follows from Nick’s inaugural lecture at the LSE in 2014. There is a video available of the lecture here. It was published in the Sociological Review here as part of our new initiative to preserve and celebrate inaugural lectures.
