The tenth research centre of Sciences Po, the médialab was created in 2009 to help social science and humanities researchers make the most of the mass of data made available by digital technology. It has three main missions that are highly integrated: methodology, analysis, theory.
The medialab team develops a large number of software programs that make it possible to organize, automate and visualize research on natively digital or digitized data.
Find the tools of the medialab:
Methods seminar organized by the Network Méthodes Analyses Terrains Enquêtes en SHS (MATE-SHS). The principle of this webinar is to ask ITs or researchers (ideally members of Mate), users of a method or tool (such as software), to present this method or tool to participants, taking care to rely on a treatment they have had to do, or are currently doing.
