Mining for Meaning - analyzing the public discourse on immigration using textual data
Miriam Hurtado Bodell, PhD student at Linköping University
Miriam's research focus on the role of media in public discourse regarding immigration and integration using large scale computational text analysis.
"Of special interest for me are the dynamics behind the creation of in- and out-groups, and the emergence and diffusion of shared understandings on political issues, and the impact of these processes on individual’s behavior. Specifically, I’m interested in adopting and modifying methodological frameworks from statistics and natural language processing to conduct sociological research."
