Society and the Social Sciences have been, and are being, massively impacted by the Big Data Revolution. Data and Society modules are already taught widely. This means that there is a need for a teaching resource which can be used to teach undergraduates, in different social-science disciplines, how to understand the Big Data Revolution in an accessible and critical way.
