SYRIAN REFUGEE CRISIS TUTORIAL

ISS 395T

This is a research-project-centered tutorial that will build on a Summer 2017 Data+ project (http://bigdata.duke.edu/projects/visualizing-suffering-tracking-photojou...). Constructing their own research questions, students will analyze the AP database photographic images of the Syrian Refugee Crisis and how they are distributed via media outlets. This tutorial will help students think through questions surrounding the links between visual and textual interpretation, copyrights problems, and ethics. The data analysis component of the project will ask students to learn how to use image search software and to apply statistical analysis tools. Instructor consent required. Instructor: Guigni
