Computational Text Analysis

Dates:
  • Wed 18 Nov 2020 09.00 - 11.00
  Add to Calendar 2020-11-18 9:00 2020-11-18 11:00 Europe/Paris Computational Text Analysis

Over the past years, the availability of new data through the digitalization of legal, political, journalistic corpora as well as the growth of online sources has allowed researchers to answer new research questions across political science.

The aim of this course is to introduce students to the quantitative analysis of textual data. We will cover both applications in recent empirical research and the implementation of text analysis techniques through hands-on experiences using the R statistical programming language.

The course will cover the collection of text data with web scraping techniques, text preprocessing, dictionaries and descriptive analysis of texts, as well as supervised and unsupervised learning methods to classify the content of text corpora. All classes will be held via Zoom
