At the year’s end, LSE Review of Books announced its ten most popular book reviews for 2015. Among these is a review of Patrick Meier’s ‘Digital Humanitarians’ by Dimitrinka Atanasova from the Information School. Dimitrinka recommends the book to all who wish to make sense of social media and Big Data during crises and disasters. She notes that the book will also appeal to Star Wars fans with its many movie analogies such as the comparison of digital humanitarians with Star Wars Jedi.
In May 2015 Patrick Meier gave a lab talk at the
University of Sheffield co-hosted with The Sheffield Institute for
International Development and the Information School’s Digital Society Network. More information on Patrick's lab talk can be found here.
