Today, Nel and I will be presenting in a workshop on political communication at Kobe University:
The Netherlands’ 15 minutes of (in)fame:
political coverage and populism in the Dutch 2017 elections
dr. Nel Ruigrok
using syntactic information for automatic analysis of conflict coverage
dr. Wouter van Atteveldt
This paper shows how syntactic information can be used to automaticallyextract clauses from text, consisting of a subject, predicate, and optionalsource. Since the output of this analysis can be seen as an enriched token list or bag of words, normal frequency based or corpus linguistic analyses can be used on this output. Taking the 2008–2009 Gaza war as an example, we show how corpus comparison, topic modelling, and semantic network analysis can be used to explore the differences between US and Chinese coverage of this war.
