The 2019 Quantitative Text Analysis Workshop will take place at the UCD University Club on the Belfield Campus in Dublin, from 18-19 June 2019. The workshop will be interdisciplinary in nature, and we invite contributions and attendance from researchers in political science, the social sciences, computer science, and other disciplines.
Automated text analysis is rapidly manifesting itself as a promising new approach for studying urgent issues facing our politics and societies today. From climate change communication, to misinformation on social media, and from party competition to elite political discourse in more or less formalised settings, textual data is ubiquitous. To take stock of new developments in this exciting field, we invite interested scholars to participate in a 2-day workshop in Dublin to discuss new approaches and substantive applications of automated and semi-automated text analysis in the political and social sciences.
