  9. 9. Deakin University CRICOS Provider Code: 00113B RECAP: What is Kinomatics?The major research aim of Kinomatics is to foster and investigate: • the global flow of culture – in particular in the film industry; • the computational turn in cinema (and music) research; • innovative approaches to digital research methodologies; • models for ‘big’ cultural data research.

  20. 20. Deakin University CRICOS Provider Code: 00113B BIG DATA AND NCH Big Data changes the past by changing our approach to it. Working with Big Data invites researchers to reflect on the nature of history itself: how do we deal with passing media, passing technologies and also passing ideas about ‘newness’ itself? If we understand information systems as inherently theoretical and temporary formations/formulations then what theoretical and historical questions do they themselves recommend?
