With a decrease in state funding, Danish cultural institutions are competing intensely for the audience. In this situation it is a good idea to know everything about the behaviour of the audience, and Big Social Data is a great source for this. According to three CBS professors, Big Social Data is in fact so great that institutions can make decisions about pricing, etc. At this seminar, they will present a model to predict the number of spectators for a show based on social media data. The Danish Royal Theater is used as an example.

To those who know Foucault and neo-liberalism, the stage has been set for an intense debate between Daniel Zamora, Postdoc at the University of Cambridge, and CBS researchers Marius Gudmund Høyer, Magnus Paulsen Hansen and Mitchell Dean. Among other things, the debate will question social democracy and what it stands for today.
In 2014, Daniel Zamora brought forward a surprising critique of Foucault in the American left-wing media Jacobin, resulting in a heated discussion of whether Foucault was a neo-liberalist. According to Zamora's analyses, Foucault has used neo-liberalism as a tool for creating a new left-wing way of thinking. His critique will serve as a basis for the seminar.
