FASS and CESAGen have invited Dr Richard Rogers to demonstrate a suite of digital research tools that have been specifically designed for humanities and social science research on the web.

Richard Rogers is head of New Media at the University of Amsterdam; director of the Foundation; director of the Digital Methods Initiative at the TEMLab, University of Amsterdam; author of award-winning Information Politics on the Web (MIT Press, 2004).

He will demonstrate how these tools, which include the IssueCrawler, can be used to:

locate emergent networked publics;

identify issues and NGO attention cycles;

monitor search engine website rankings over time;

discover censored web sites;

map web content, including images.

All staff & postgraduate research students in CESAGen and FASS and its associated centres and groups welcome. To register and for further information, contact Karen Donnelly (
