#techplomacy Datasprint

On the 28 September and 2 October, the Data as Relation research team worked with ETHOS Lab on a datasprint around the hashtag #techplomacy. As part of Subproject 3 of the Data as Relation project, Locating the Dataverse, led by Postdoc James Maguire, the visualisation and analysis of the #techplomacy hashtag explored the work that the neologism does in building relations between the Danish state and the Tech industry.

As a digital methods initiative in combination with ethnographic work, the datasprint produced data visualisations which were empirically informed and critically analysed. The Data as Relation project members presented the resulting analyses to the Danish Embassy in Silicon Valley in December 2018.
