Big data and big ideas in Asian Studies
By Gerry van Klinken
This text is based on introductory remarks to a double panel on big data at the Association for Asian Studies annual convention held in Philadelphia in March 2014. The panel was organised by researchers from the eHumanities project Elite Network Shifts. Four papers from this panel, and a longer version of the present text, have been submitted to the Asian Journal of Social Science for a special issue on big data.
