Workshop on Computational Text Analysis in the Social Sciences

In October 2019, we hosted scholars from across disciplines to discuss cutting-edge techniques for using large text corpora to understand how issues of migration and immigration are discussed in the political, media, and public spheres.

Researchers in sociology, mathematics, complexity science, economics, digital humanities, and statistics from several countries contributed to this fruitful and inspiring event. We thank you all for sharing your work!
